Quality Matters

QM Logo

One key to our success in online learning is the work we do with faculty to design courses that meet well-established best practices for online course design and development. To support these efforts, Extended Campus is committed to implementing Quality Matters standards for the design of all online courses.

Because Quality Matters standards promote learner engagement and an active focus on student success, we systematically build and evaluate online courses based on these rigorous, research-based standards. UNC is a Quality Matters subscriber, and these standards—as well as other best practices—form the foundation of all of our course design and development activity.
