What is QM?

Quality Matters is a review process developed to assure the quality of online courses.  QM’s faculty-centered, peer-based approach, with its emphasis on continuous improvement, has received national recognition. A variety of academic institutions subscribe to QM, including community and technical colleges, colleges and universities, as well as K-12 schools and school systems. The QM designation represents a national benchmark for excellence in online course design. Click here to view a list of PGCC courses that have met the QM designation.


The 2014 QM Rubric was released in August 2014. Visit our Resources page for more information
