Quality Matters (QM) is an international organization that is recognized as a leader in quality assurance for online education. QM Rubrics and Standards were created to help course developers, teachers, faculty, institutions, and students. The General Standards and Specific Review Standards in each Rubric are intended to guide you through the development, evaluation, and improvement of your online and blended courses. The QM Rubrics are supported by literature reviews of online learning research and incorporate best practices from course developers and instructors. As an institutional member, University of Kentucky faculty and staff may receive member pricing and reduced rates for QM conferences and workshops.
