Course Redesign Based on the Quality Matters Program: Examples of Before and After
Kreie, Jennifer; Bussmann, Susan
Information Systems Education Journal, v13 n6 p109-122 Nov 2015
Most universities continue to expand their online course offerings because there is strong demand for such educational opportunities. However, the quality of instruction for online courses continues to be a concern. The Quality Matters (QM) Program provides a set of research-based standards that can guide the redesign of a course and can be used as a rubric to evaluate a course. This paper shows the transition of one course as it was redesigned based on the QM standards. Specific examples of "before" and "after" content are shown along with discussion of the changes made and some design issues encountered. Feedback from students midway through the first semester using the redesigned course is presented.
