A people-centered, collaborative approach to quality assurance is a critical part of a successful Quality Matters implementation. You can help build a culture of quality assurance at your organization by connecting with and contributing to resources that support the use of QM Rubric Standards, the Continuous Improvement Process and sharing QM principles.
Rubrics & Standards
The five QM Rubric Standards for Course Design are intended for use with courses delivered fully online or those with significant online components (hybrid and blended courses). The QM Online Instructor Skills Set was designed to support Online Teaching Competency through evidence.
