Priorities

1. Quality Matters Course Certification – Promotes best practices in online learning by supporting faculty to achieve the highest national standards in course design. While all online and blended courses may receive QM certification, the TLC will give priority to mathematics courses.

The TLC will assist by pairing you with an Instructional Designer.
