Quality Matters

qm-logoAthens State University registered with Quality Matters in 2014.

Quality Matters (QM) is a leader in quality assurance for online education and has received national recognition for its peer-based approach to continuous improvement in online education and student learning. The program features:

  • Faculty-centered, continuous improvement models for assuring the quality of online courses through peer review
  • Professional development workshops and certification courses for instructors and online learning professionals
  • Rubrics for applying quality standards to course design

Athens State University is currently in the process of accepting faculty volunteers to go through the process of becoming certified peer reviewers. After this phase, a rollout plan will be developed to allow faculty to voluntarily use this service to have their courses reviewed by a team of nationally certified reviewers.
