Quality Matters (TM)
Cal State Fullerton, along with the CSU system, is a Quality Matters (QM) subscriber. QM is a faculty-centered, peer review process that is designed to certify the quality of online courses and online components. QM has received national recognition for its peer-based approach to quality assurance and continuous improvement in online education.
QM offers FREE webinars called QM Success Stories to subscribers.
