Quality Matters

One of the keys to our educational successes in online learning is the faculty who design, develop, and deliver the online courses. It is your committed work that allows online students to receive the same excellent content and facilitation as face-to-face students.

To support these efforts, the University of Northern Colorado is committed to implementing Quality Matters standards for the design of online courses. We are systematically building and evaluating our courses based on these rigorous, research-based standards. UNC recognizes that Quality Matters standards promote learner engagement and provide students with the tools and information they need to be successful learners. More information can be found at the Quality Matters website.
