Sharon Felegie, Instructional Designer from the ATDL, presented a workshop to HSB faculty on the use of the Quality Matters rubric in online course design. She gave an overview of the rubric, which consists of eight key components and forty one specific guidelines used to create a quality online course design. Quality Matters is a nationally recognized program, based on faculty research. Saint Joseph’s University has been a member of Quality Matters since 2011. For more information about the program, please visit their website at: https://www.qualitymatters.org/
