Session B10

2nd Annual Conference on Teaching and Learning at CNM

Q.M. the Easy Way: Using the Distance Learning Classroom

Jessica Rosazza Williams, Distance Learning; Bonnie Bailey, SAGE

Apache, 12:30-1:45


CNM adopted the Quality Matters Rubric to help our online courses meet best practice standards and thereby improve student success in online classes.  The rubric, which consists of 41 specific standards, can feel a bit daunting.  Let the Distance Learning Department come to your rescue with the new Distance Learning Classroom.  This new course design makes meeting Quality Matters Standards easy! This shell allows faculty to express academic freedom, while ensuring our courses exhibit best practices as defined by Quality Matters.  The DL Classroom will help students more easily navigate their online courses, become more familiar with required tools and software, and allow them to concentrate on the course material more quickly.  This session provides an overview of the DL Classroom, an opportunity to view the QM Standards, and discusses how to create a course reflective of QM best practices.
