Conference Description: MountainMoot 2020
Let’s face it, some online courses are great, and some are terrible. Which is yours? Quality Matters (QM) is a non-profit quality assurance organization that certifies online courses to help deliver well-conceived, well-designed, and well-presented online courses. In 2019, I pursued QM certification for my Business Analytics course, which I been teaching asynchronously online since early 2017. This presentation explains the QM process, necessary course revisions, restructuring elements in my LMS, Moodle, and eventual success.
