Quality Matters Training
Cincinnati State is committed to implementing the Quality Matters standards for the design of [online and/or hybrid] courses, and is systematically building and evaluating our courses based on these rigorous, research-supported standards. The Quality Matters standards assure that the online components of these courses promote learner engagement and provide students with all the tools and information they need to be successful learners.
Any faculty designing or redesigning distance education courses for semester delivery at Cincinnati State should participate in a Quality Matters rubric workshop (Preparing Your Online Course for Semesters).
The Quality Matters rubric assures that all online courses are consistent, easy-to-understand, and meet the high-quality standards expected at Cincinnati State.
