Quality Matters (QM) is a nationally recognized, faculty-centered, peer review process designed to acknowledge the quality of online/hybrid courses. While the QM recognition is limited to online and hybrid courses, the principles used are not limited to any type of course. They can be easily applied to your face-to-face courses using any Learning Management System (LMS).
QM framework is about course design, and making your course navigation and structure intuitive, so that students' questions will be more focused on the content of your course. QM recognized courses improve both student learning outcomes, student success, and retention.
Applying the QM Rubric, QM's flagship training, provides an in-depth exploration of the QM Rubric and its use in evaluating online courses.
For individuals interested in becoming a Peer Reviewer this is Part I of the training required to become a certified Peer Reviewer.
