QM Template Integration

We have created a template that targets the QM Rubric. The QM Rubric [PDF] has become the most widely used set of standards for the design of online and blended courses at the college level. Today, more than 850 colleges and universities subscribe to Quality Matters.

How Do I Use the Template?

The template consists of 8 main tabs on the main navigation bar. The course has a home page and a content page that will hold all instructional content.

The main homepage is divided into three areas:
