Course Certification

Minnesota Online Quality Initiative logoMOQI uses the Quality Matters Official Peer Review Process

The course peer review process is a voluntary process.  It involves a comprehensive review of an online or blended course by trained and certified peer reviewers who utilize the Quality Matters standards and procedures. Courses are reviewed by a team of 3 certified reviewers trained by QM to apply the Quality Matters rubric and provide feedback on your course. Courses that meet standards are listed in a national database of recognized courses. The course developer is provided access to an online “seal” from QM that indicates the year the course met standards – this seal can be displayed by the faculty course developer each time the course is taught by including it in the course syllabus or online.

Our Goal

To increase the number of QM Recognized courses at each of the Colleges and Universities of Minnesota State through a cost-effective process that focuses on building collaborative relationships and shared expertise in quality course design.
