Now more than ever, it is important for online instructors to understand the benefits of having their course QM certified and the potential benefits that their learners, their departments, and even their institutions can attain by having a course shell that has been QM approved. There is some apprehension by instructors at large to have their department have QM certified course shells. Some instructors believe that they will have less freedom in the teaching of their course if the course shells are QM certified. By giving information on how the positive aspects of being QM certified outweigh the negative, maybe more instructors would be willing to try for a QM certified curriculum and course shell. This would mean great things for the online portion of our institution in terms of being nationally competitive in the world of higher education online teaching.
