QM Fundamentals Course Review

Have you successfully completed ATC's "Designing a Quality Online Course?" Are you currently using the ATC Course Design Template? If so, then your course may already meet QM Fundamentals Rubric Standards.

What are QM Fundamentals?

*IMPORTANT NOTICE: As UWF transitions to a new learning management system, The QM Fundamentals review process is being revised. Please contact Karen Rasmussen, krasmuss@uwf.edu with any questions regarding QM Fun.

A QM Fundamentals course review is recommended for all online courses at UWF. An online course which effectively integrates the ATC course design template and successfully meets the requirements of a QM Fundamentals review could satisfy 75% of the requirements for a full QM course certification

QM Fundamentals consists of:

  1. A condensed set of standards - includes all the essential standards pulled from the QM Rubric
    1. Log into Confluence to download a copy of the QM Fundamentals Rubric*. 
  2. A course design template to guide instructors:
    1. in developing new online courses
    2. to improve existing courses
    3. Many time-consuming features have been built into the template to save faculty valuable time.

*Meeting QM's accessibility Standards does not guarantee or imply that specific country/federal/state/local accessibility regulations are met. Please consult with an accessibility specialist to ensure that accessibility regulations are met (Quality Matters Rubric Standards).

Apply to have a QM Fundamentals Course Review if:

  1. You have completed ATC's Designing a Quality Online Course
  2. Your course is in the ATC course design template or a similarly approved course template

What is in it for YOU?

  1. If your course meets standards in a QM Fundamentals course review, you will receive a $500 stipend and a QM Fundamentals Certificate.
  2. Ultimately, you will have a better, higher quality course for you and your students.
