Quality Matters: A National Benchmark for Online Course Design
Fri, 2012-04-13 07:44
Quality Matters (QM) is a faculty-centered, peer review process that is designed to certify the quality of online and blended courses. The Quality Matters process evaluates the instructional design of online courses; it does not evaluate course content or the faculty delivery content. The Quality Matters standards, which are supported by best practices and research literature that is updated with every new rubric release, assure that the online components of these courses promote learner engagement and provide students with all the tools and information they need to be successful learners.
