Abstract

Online courses have seen an increase in demand while adding complexity to the learning environment. Therefore, teachers not only face the challenge to offer a quality online learning experience but also to develop online courses efficiently. This article highlights the benefits of certifying courses through Quality Matters (QM), which is one of the quality benchmarks for online courses. It also offers several practical tools that help streamline course design in preparation for the QM review and re-certification process. Two sample QM certified business courses are presented to demonstrate how the different parts of these courses effectively and efficiently apply QM guidelines.
