Improve Courses & Training by Building Expertise

Quality Matters online workshops help faculty, teachers and instructional designers grow beyond their current online learning expertise. Whether you are experienced or just entering online learning, your courses — and learners — will benefit from the application of QM Rubrics and course improvement tools. Workshops are available to both QM members and non-members, with significant cost-savings for members.
