Home > About GOAL
Global Online Association for Learning (GOAL) is a nonprofit online learning association that represents the interest of educational institutions, teachers, students, and organizations involved in online education. We strongly support the development and application of online learning through new concepts and information and communications technology. We promote professionalism and high quality online education such that it will merit equal recognition as traditional, pre-World Wide Web approaches.
GOAL believes that online learning can offer more than just basic knowledge-sharing. We aim to make use of a wide range of communication channels and technologies to advance online education, encourage the development of policy and standards, and build and sustain partnerships with stakeholders. GOAL seeks to professionalize online educators and provide them access to experts in education and in various fields of scholarship.
