The Quality Matters™ Program is a faculty-centered, peer-review process designed to certify the quality of online courses and online components. The primary components of QM include a set of standards (rubric) for the design of online courses, a peer-review process for applying the standards to provide feedback for faculty in the continuous improvement of their online and blended courses, and professional development opportunities for faculty.
QM Rubric – The QM process certifies the design of courses as meeting shared standards of best practice using the QM Rubric.
The CSU has a systemwide agreement with Quality Matters™, allowing our CSU campus affiliates to subscribe at a cost of $1,155 (reg. $3,465).
