Overview

The Fast Track course review process was designed to provide instructor teams at UF with a streamlined way to submit their online courses for review when multiple instructors use the same course shell, but use techniques that suit their instructional style for content delivery. If your course shares at least 80% or more of the design of a course that has been previously reviewed and received a designation, then submitting your course for a Fast Track review is a viable option for you.

The Fast Track course review process focuses on the unique teaching methods instructors employ. Reviewers will evaluate the course using the UF+QM Rubric’s teaching practice standards. The design score from the initial course’s review will be factored into your score to determine your course’s quality designation.
