Quality and quality assurance of distance and e-learning have become important concerns of providers, stakeholders and students. This paper reports the results of a provider survey on the quality of distance and e-learning in Asian institutions. The survey is intended to collect information about distance and e-learning institutions in Asia relating to institution’s profile, teaching and learning, QA mechanisms including procedures, methods and criteria, and accreditation and quality certification. A survey method was used to collect data from providers of distance and e-learning institutions throughout Asia, and twenty six institutions responded to the survey conducted in 2010. Responding institutions represent different types of institutions and student profiles, large open universities and small-scale providers, public and private, as well as single-mode and dual mode institutions. Findings of the research indicated that distance and e-learning institutions share common spirit in quality assurance despite their varieties in their approaches, methods, processes, criteria, indicators, and so forth. Asian institutions also share commonalities in terms of their distance education principles and approaches, despite their varieties in terms of teaching and learning methods, use of information and communication technology, and the extent in the use of elearning systems. These findings will be useful as benchmarking among distance and e-learning institutions in Asia and of importance to institutions as feedbacks for continuous improvement. Moreover, it will be of interests to policymakers and quality assurance managers as baseline for enhancement of their quality assurance practices
