Quality Matters Ohio ConsortiumThis workshop sponsored by the Center for eLearning explores the Quality Matters program and prepares you to be part of an initiative that positively impacts the design of online/blended courses and ultimately, learning and success for the learner. QM is designed to improve the quality of online/blended courses by establishing a peer-reviewed quality assurance review process. You will become familiar with QM standards and participate in a practice peer course review of an online course using the review tools.

Participants in this hands-on workshop can be:

  • Online/blended instructors
  • Faculty members
  • Instructional designers
  • Course representatives

After successfully completing this workshop, you will be eligible to move into the Online Peer Reviewer Certification and gain ideas to improve your own courses using QM Standards.

Upon completion of the QM training, you will be able to:

  • Identify the underlying principles of QM
  • Identify the critical elements of the QM quality assurance program, including QM Rubric, materials, processes, and administrative components
  • Apply the QM Rubric to review online courses
  • Make decisions on whether a course meets selected QM Rubric standards
