As set forth by the UNC System Quality Matters (QM) Council, the objective of the System-wide QM program is to guide participating institutions and faculty through the successful implementation and sustainable broad-scale online, hybrid and remote course quality. The UNC System Office, Digital Learning Department supports the QM Council and the broader QM program by:

  • Providing leadership and funding for a System-wide QM membership which reduces individual institution membership fees by over 50%
  • Establishing, leading and funding targeted faculty QM development initiatives aimed at increasing System-wide QM training and certification skillsets in support of creating a scalable QM program

Today, all 17 UNC System institutions, and over 3,000 faculty, participate in the QM program through various online support tools and training events offered across our the System and by the QM organization.

QM from the faculty perspective

UNC System faculty who have adopted the QM methodology to enhance the quality of their online, hybrid and remote learning courses identify several key factors to their success, including:

  • QM enables a course design environment that fosters creativity
  • The QM rubrics and tools support and guide efficient transition to online and remote learning
  • The QM methodology supports proactive course design to address elements of accessibility, assessment, enhanced engagement, and student support

Play the video above to learn more about why faculty across the UNC System are adopting the QM methodology.
