Applying the Quality Matters (QM)™ Rubric to Improve Online Business Course Materials
Woods, Dexter R., Jr.
Research in Higher Education Journal, v23 Apr 2014
Online classes, hybrid or blended classes, and web-facilitated classes all employ online materials, which instructors and students are using at ever-increasing rates. Accordingly, instructors should continuously evaluate the effectiveness of such online materials. This paper sets forth the author's initial attempts to analyze a business course pursuant to items in the Quality Matters (QM)™ Rubric designed by an organization whose mission is to certify the quality of online and blended courses. The paper illustrates how the author was able to begin to improve the business course with the assistance of the Rubric. The paper also illustrates how student input can significantly assist the QM review process.
