Quality Matters APPQMR Session November 15

What is QM?

Quality Matters (QM) is a nationally recognized, faculty-centered, peer review process designed to acknowledge the quality of online/hybrid courses. The 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. Research supports that QM recognized courses improve both student learning outcomes, student success, and retention.
