Orienting Your Online Learners: QM General Standard 1
Create a strategy that welcomes, orients all students
Quality Matters (QM) is a nationally recognized, faculty-centered, peer review process designed to improve online and blended course quality to benefit online learners. At UMBC, Quality Matters served as the foundation for the PIVOT program, and there is evidence to suggest strong course design has an impact on student satisfaction with courses and course organization.
Grounded in evidence-based practice, peer review, and collegiality, Quality Matters is used by more than 40,000 educators and instructional designers worldwide to strengthen online/hybrid course design.
