This article reflects on the informative experiences collated by the authors throughout their participation in various international e-Learning projects, coordinated by UNESCO and supported by the European Commission, and also in projects supported by various governmental and/or private academic institutions. In a previous work, they proposed an approach showing how to reverse-engineer many of the knowledge practiced by the e-Learning community to reflect positively on the quality management of face-to-face pedagogy. Concretely, the previous work was devoted to quality management issues related to curriculum design, content, organization, review and assessment. The objective of this article is to address the remaining aspects of academic provision such as student guidance and support, learning resources, and quality management and enhancement. The authors acted as project leaders, pedagogical and technical experts, as well as researchers and/or e-Learning material developers and/or tutors. The article emanated from the fact that most of the pedagogical activities throughout the world, mainly in developing countries, are still conducted through the face-to-face approach, and that the quality management of the face-to-face type of pedagogy in such countries is still a challenging issue.
