Quality Matters is a leader in quality assurance for online education and has received national recognition for its scalable, peer-based approach and continuous improvement in online education and student learning.

The Improving Your Online Course (IYOC) workshop explores the QM Rubric and provides a framework to improve the quality of online courses. Participants use the QM Rubric to review their own courses and develop a plan to improve the design of an online course.

IYOC is a CTE prerequisite for official Quality Matters course review and certification.


  • Certification to teach online at Georgia Southern.
  • Two semesters of online teaching experience.
  • An online course to improve.


  • Participants who successfully complete the IYOC are eligible to download and print a certificate of completion from the Quality Matters website.
  • Our best estimate is that a total of 18 hours (6 hours per week) will be needed to complete the program.
