Quality Matters at Iowa State University

Since 2015 CELT has been working to provide faculty and staff (who have a teaching role) with a voluntary process for designing/developing their courses using Quality Matters (QM) a nationally recognized program. Quality Matters (QM) is a faculty-centered, peer review process that is designed to certify the quality of online and blended courses. QM is a leader in quality assurance for online education and has received national recognition for its peer-based approach and continuous improvement in online education and student learning. QM reviews course design only – not delivery or faculty performance. To learn more about QM, visit the Quality Matters (QM) website.
