Discover how UMBC is leveraging the Quality Matters (QM) Assurance System to improve online and blended course design to support the learner's experience in this 30-minute session.

Recently, six UMBC faculty accepted an invitation to pursue QM course certification through the Quality Matters Impact (QMI) initiative. QMI leverages the official QM course review process which is managed by DoIT staff who are QM-certified and trained. These faculty are the first to submit an online or hybrid course for this high distinction of quality in online/blended course design through a partnership with the Provost’s office.
