Course Review Process

The University of Florida’s Quality Assurance Committee has developed guidelines to support online courses. These provide the framework for the development, self-review, and peer review of online courses. Every semester, courses are reviewed in three cohorts using the UF + QM rubric. All faculty who teach online can have their course(s) reviewed. The course review process is opt-in. Course reviews serve as a tool for ongoing course improvements. Courses that have been reviewed will receive a quality or high quality designation and may be eligible for awards at the university and state level.
