Quality Matters

QM@YCQuality Matters (QM) is a non-profit organization dedicated to quality assurance in online and hybrid education based upon extensive and ongoing research. In December 2016, Faculty Senate adopted Quality Matters as a guideline for improving YC's online courses.

"The impact of Quality Matters on certified courses is undeniable. Course review results in better course design, which makes navigation easier for students, reduces barriers to student achievement, and results in better outcomes."
