    Abstract

    This paper investigates the models and acceptability of e-learning to the
    emerging student markets for higher education institutions (HEIs) from the more
    developed countries (MDCs) and seeks to evaluate the differing models of delivery
    from a practical and a socio-economic perspective. The research also investigates the impact of the shifts in population growth and the subsequent impact upon the levels of demand from students in less developed countries (LDCs) for HE. In addition, through case study review methods the logistical and quality factors affecting elearning are critically evaluated, looking at the aspects of academic rigor, plagiarism and the methods of managing the originality and authenticity of student work.
    Similarly, the research considers the viability of situations where the education
    provider may never physically meet the students through the exclusive use of Virtual Learning Environments (VLEs), and the possible credibility issues that this may present to institutional and awarding body reputations.
