Quality Course Design

Be sure to check out ATC's new Quality Online Course Program initiative! This incentive program compensates faculty for time, effort and commitment to designing and teaching quality online or blended courses.

The QM Rubric Standards

ATC subscribes to the Quality Matters (QM) Rubric Standards as guidelines for designing new online courses and as a strategy for improving existing courses. To learn more about QM @ UWF, follow the link to the left.

See the QM Rubric Standards at-a-glance QM Rubric Standards at-a-glance on this one-page PDF document. Our subscription with QM allows faculty at UWF to have access to the 22-page fully annotated version of the Quality Matters rubric, complete with strategies and examples for meeting each standard. Contact Cindy Mersereau at cmersereau@uwf.edu to request a full version copy of the rubric.

The ATC Course Design Template

The ATC Design Template was created to assist faculty in developing online courses that contain key elements of the Quality Matters standards. It is a great place to start for faculty new to online learning or if you need a logical, consistent and efficient structure for your online course(s).

The template is available in a variety of background styles and colors. Visit the following link to explore the template styles and for instructions on loading a template into your eLearning course shells.ATC Course Design Templates
