What is Quality Matters?

Quality Matters (QM) is a research-supported program designed to encourage quality in online and other digital teaching and learning environments. Through a rigorous rubric-based review process, the design of an online course is evaluated on a set of eight General Standards and 42 Specific Review Standards. The alignment of the eight General Standards is evaluated as well, to ensure students can meet the learning outcomes for the course. There are currently more than 60,000 members of the Quality Matters organization worldwide.

You can learn more about the Quality Matters program and resources at the Quality Matters website.
