Do you teach online courses and wonder if your course is doing all it can to help your students meet the learning outcomes? Have you thought about trying to develop an online course but are not sure what the best approach would be to ensure a rigorous, dynamic, and interesting learning experience for the students? Would some specific guidelines and suggestions help? The Quality Matters Rubric is a set of 8 general standards and 41 specific standards, and is a guide to best practices for distributed learning courses. This session will show you how you can use the rubric to help you evaluate your course design and menu structure to ensure logical, intuitive, and consistent course navigation, and maximize time on task. The rubric can also be used to evaluate online course components including the course syllabus, course outline and schedule, and course assignments and assessments. Examples will be discussed.
