Authentication and Quality Assurance of the Econtent One of the important systems of communication of knowledge, in recent times, has been through web casting and its delivery through internet and now it is likely to be through broadband. One is able to see on the website whatever is hosted by the information/knowledge providers. However, it is very difficult to ascertain the authenticity and correctness of information. It the case of the print medium there is a system of review by the peer group and publication of the same in journals and newspapers. But in the case of website, no such system seems to have been evolved so far the issue assumes greater significance when one is web casting educational material. The corrections, authenticity and the quality of the material have to be necessarily assured so as to provide authentic knowledge, information to students, teachers, and general readers.
At present there is a system of quality assurance for institution and programmes studies, and to some extent syllabus and syllabus transaction under the programmes of studies. There is a system of preview for films, documentaries educational programmes. But there is no system of quality assurance of content which is being made available on the website form the point of view of educational effectiveness standards.
