Education is associated with standardization – determining how learning should occur and for what students, is the essence of education from the perspective of those who administer educational programs. The administration of education also requires the consideration of roles, whether of content developer, tester, lecturer, manager, or something else (Rada, 2001). What has happened historically as regards standardization and roles in education, and how does this relate to the impact of online education?
