Thank you for your interest in having one or more of your online or hybrid courses recognized by Quality Matters (QM) ™. This allows for the continuous improvement of online and hybrid courses. The QM program was developed by a MarylandOnline grant project with the Fund for the Improvement of Post-Secondary Education (FIPSE) and has been adopted by hundreds of higher education institutions across forty-two states, Canada, Bermuda and Australia. Courses that have been taught for at least one semester are eligible for QM review. The goals of the program are to increase student retention, learning, and satisfaction in online courses by implementing best practices in online course design.
The course review process actively involves faculty, and there is a limited time during which any requested course revisions may be completed. As such, there is some initial information we would like to gather from any faculty member requesting a QM course review. Once this interest form is completed, a Center for eLearning staff member will enroll you into our Quality Matters Review Process CO in BlazeVIEW, where we request you to complete a VSU Faculty Developer Form and a Self-Review of your course, which will aid in preparing your course for review.
If you have any questions about QM and/or the QM course review process, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org or 229.245.6490.
