The UF+Quality Matters Rubric provides research-driven guidance for course design. The Pathways to Online Teaching Excellence course review process was designed to support instructors as they pursue continuous improvement in online courses.

Should My Course Be Reviewed?


Request a course review review if:

  • Your new course has been taught online at least once before the review
  • At least 80% of the course is taught online (synchronously or asynchronously)
  • You have changed 20% or more of the course (i.e. new textbook or assignments) and need a streamlined review “update”
  • You would like the course to be considered for the Exemplary Online Awards
