Assessment Tools for Learning Systems
Faculty who are interested in learning more about the Quality Matters system of course design and the Quality Matters standards for online courses are encouraged to register for a free Quality Matters Success Stories webinar to view on their own.
Their webinar schedule is listed below. Seats are limited, register today!
It’s hard to know what to do when we don’t know what we don’t know about implementing and maintaining Quality Matters at our institutions. Join three QM rookies for this discussion on implementation and sustainability of QM at their respective institutions. The presenters will share innovative ways to implement and maintain QM through best practices and life lessons.

In this session we will explore strategies for applying the QM K-12 Rubric to the process of online course development. See how the development team at Michigan Virtual School used the QM K-12 Rubric and Annotations to increase course quality and development efficiency. First, we will present a process for developing institutional best practices by closely studying each Standard. Next, we will look at how to apply these practices to the development of course and lesson templates. Sample templates will be provided and participants will be encouraged to share their own best practices.
