Quality courses remove obstacles to learner achievement and are easier to navigate. They result in better learning outcomes and a better student experience. FSU is committed to online course quality and uses the Quality Matters rubric to review all new and substantively revised online courses. Its eight quality standards are backed by national research in online learning and represent a faculty-centered, peer review process designed to certify the quality of online courses. The resources found in the pages of this guide were selected by our FSU Office of Distance Learning Instructional Designers to provide evidence-based data, theory, and case studies on various aspects of asynchronous online learning.
