“I loved participating in the QM Colleague Program…it helps to talk with someone who has been through the process and knows what works.”
Diane Pisacreta from Saint Louis Community College, Professor
With online learning, everyone has a goal. Learners need to improve and grow. You work to nurture them with well-conceived, well-designed, well-presented courses and programs. Our goal — as a non-profit, quality assurance organization — is to provide a system to help you deliver on that promise: with review, improvement and certification of quality.
Join the QM Community October 27 - 30 in Grapevine, Texas at the Gaylord Texan. From keynote speaker Dr. George Siemens to the wide variety of sessions on topics related to the theme of "Committing to Excellence for Learners", this is the must-attend conference for educators that believe quality matters.
Share your research, experiences and best practices for regional online learning quality this Spring. Submit a proposal for the 2020 QM West Regional Conference — April 2 & 3 at the University of California, Fullerton based on the theme of “Reaching for Student Success”. Or, inspire your colleagues at the 2020 QM East Regional Conference — April 23 & 24 at Berkeley College in New York City — around the theme of “Reimagining Quality Pathways”. The submission deadline is November 11, 2019.

If you’ve been looking for solutions to help ensure that learners are engaging with high quality courses, QM has them. Through course improvement, professional development and robust review processes, QM empowers you to deliver on the promise of online learning.
QM’s five Rubrics are comprised of General and Specific Review Standards, allowing for complete course review. The Standards are research-supported and based on published best practices. QM Rubrics are an essential part of creating, certifying and maintaining quality course design.
