Creating Outstanding Online Courses Through Quality Matters

Many organizations and institutions have created rubrics that define quality online courses and online teaching. One benchmark standard is Quality Matters.

Rubrics not only serve as excellent mechanisms for assessing the strengths and weakness of your courses and teaching, but also as excellent guides for the development of quality teaching practices. Rubrics and design standards help students make the best use of your online courses.
