Quality Matters: New Roles for Librarians Using Standards for Online Course Design
Newby, Jill; Eagleson, Laurie; Pfander, Jeanne
Journal of Library & Information Services In Distance Learning, v8 n1-2 p32-44 2014
Quality Matters™ (QM) is a nationally recognized organization that certifies online courses for effective design, using an evidenced-based set of standards and a structured peer review process. In this paper, the authors demonstrate how academic librarians involved with online courses can adopt Quality Matters to build capacity for designing online courses, as well as using this expertise to evaluate newly developed online courses throughout the university, thus building new networks and relationships with campus teaching faculty and other personnel interested in quality online learning.
