Is this Membership right for your organization?

The Higher Ed. Essentials for Basic Subscription package provides all the features of the HE Basic membership with additional QM quality assurance components built in. Choosing this package means you save 5% or more compared to purchasing the items individually. The professional development, course review and QM conference components are included as “pre-paid” once your membership is activated. Signing up for a package is a great way to formalize your QM implementation plan and jump start engagement with your team to use QM right away.

This subscription package is ideal for independent higher education institutions (not part of a system) that are in an early phase of developing quality assurance for online courses. The workshop included will introduce your team to QM Standards and how they can be used to design, review and improve courses. The Official Course Review included will provide insight on how a course is aligning to QM Standards and may result in QM Certification. Participating in QM Connect will introduce your organization to resources and networking opportunities to strengthen and scale your QM implementation.

What your Membership includes

In addition to all features and benefits listed for the HE Basic Subscription — including two free seats in the QM Coordinator Training and access to the fully-annotated Higher Ed. Rubric for Course Design — this subscription includes:
