When three or more organizations sign up for a Consortium Membership with the same billing cycle, each one will receive 25% off their annual Membership.

Is this Membership right for you?

The Consortium Subscription works best for organizations that aren’t part of a larger system, but want access to quality assurance tools at a reduced price. Once each organization signs up (with either Small or Standard option), they can start using the QM HE Rubric to improve course design and meet QM Standards. By empowering your faculty and staff to conduct course reviews and facilitate the APPQMR and IYOC workshops, you can begin to create a culture that’s committed to quality assurance in online learning.
