Foreword by Wally Boston:
The Quality Matters organization developed a very famous rubric for evaluating the quality of online courses, and online educators throughout higher education utilize this rubric. Earlier this year, the organization published, Assuring Quality in Online Education: Practices and Processes at the Teaching, Resource, and Program Levels which, according to the foreword, “…provides a comprehensive overview of quality assurance, a snapshot of current practices and proven recommendations for raising standards of quality in online education.”
I’m proud to congratulate Dr.
