Abstract: There are a lot of factors that affect the quality of an online course. One of the factors is course design which is an integral part of the Quality Matters (QM) process. The standards of the QM Rubric address only the course design aspect of online course quality. When a course is designed to meet QM Rubric, one has to submit the course for review either by internal reviewers or QM. This ensures that the course has met the QM standards and the quality of course design is assured. The presenter will discuss his experience working as a QM Master Reviewer/ Campus QM Co-coordinator and offer best practices for designing an online course to meet QM standards.
