Quality Course BadgesTopic Overview

The University of Florida Quality Assurance Committee has developed guidelines for ensuring we offer quality online learning experiences to students. In 2018, the UF Standards and Markers of Excellence underwent a major transformation to become the UF + Quality Matters (UF+QM) rubric. These standards are regularly updated to reflect changes and improvements in online education. These guidelines provide a framework for development, self-review and peer review of online courses.

Strategies

It is recommended that you refer to the UF+Quality Matters standards as a guide when building an online course. One best practice is to use the UF+QM Rubric to complete a self-review of the online course you create prior to launching it for instruction. The same information you provide in your self-review responses can be used to submit the course for an online course review and the Exemplary Online Awards.
