Answer the K-12 Call for Quality

Thank you for your interest in improving the online learning experience for K-12 students. The recording for the webinar “National Standards for Quality Online Courses: What You Need to Know” is now available.

During the webinar, QM’s K-12 Program Director Christine Voelker and Cindy Hamblin, Director of the Virtual Learning Leadership Alliance (VLLA), explored the standards and explained how you can use them to improve learning. You can answer the call for quality by putting this tool to work and leveraging available resources:

Take the Standards to the Next Level
The National Standards for Quality Online Courses and the Quality Matters K-12 Rubric are closely aligned, with the Rubric offering an expanded presentation of the standards and full Annotations. These added elements allow for a robust review process. Course design certification — which serves as the mark of course quality for The National Standards for Quality Online Learning — is achieved through QM Official Reviews using the QM Rubric.
