Quality Matters has created a series of Program Certifications that focus on program outcomes and critical inputs to quality online course delivery. Program Certifications draw upon the knowledge gained from thousands of courses at hundreds of institutions.

QM provides opportunities to apply for program certification in four areas:

  • Online Program Design
  • Online Teaching Support
  • Online Learner Support
  • Online Learner Success

QM Program Certification demonstrates a commitment to quality in online learning , highlights the quality of online programs to stakeholders, and streamlines preparation for regional or professional accreditation.

To learn more about program certification categories, visit the Quality Matters website, then view the Annotated Program Criteria.
