What is a QM-Certified Course?
A QM-Certified Course is an online or blended course that has met QM Standards for a QM Rubric in an Official Course Review. Once certified, organizations can display the QM Certification Mark to demonstrate their commitment to quality and continuous improvement.
Examine Course Design Through the Eyes of a Learner
A well-designed course is more likely to engage learners and positively affect their performance. Using the QM Rubric and relevant review tools as a guide, you, your colleagues, or a team of QM-trained, experienced online instructors can evaluate the design of your online or blended course and ensure it meets QM Standards. When you’re ready to put a course through the review process, you’ll receive fresh ideas from colleagues who are interested in your course and can offer specific feedback in a positive tone that will help you to improve the quality of your course and create a more active learning experience for students.
