QUALITY MATTERS

Online faculty members are required to take an online training through Quality Matters. Below is information about the two courses options. They are both 100% online and two weeks in length.  Contact Dr. Andrew Simoncelli if you are interested in taking one of them.

Designing Your Online Course (DYOC)

The “Designing Your Online Course” (formerly Build Your Online Course) workshop includes an overview of the QM Rubric and provides a framework to design an online course plan. Participants explore all eight key standards of the QM Rubric, focusing on learning objectives and overall course alignment.

The course lasts two weeks and is taught entirely online. Participants can expect to spend about 8-10 hours per week to successfully complete this workshop.

Improving Your Online Course (IYOC)

The “Improve Your Online Course” workshop explores the QM Rubric and provides a framework to improve the quality of online courses. Participants use the QM Rubric to review their online courses and develop a course improvement plan. The content is based on the eight general standards of the Quality Matters Rubric.  You should have an online course ready to improve. This course is not for building a course from scratch.

Participants need access to an existing online course. The course lasts two weeks and is taught entirely online. Participants can expect to spend about 8-10 hours per week to successfully complete this workshop.
