The Quality Matters Program is a nationally recognized organization dedicated to creating standards for sound online design and effective course content. Last year, Wiley’s Higher Education business partnered with Quality Matters to establish a set of rigorous standards to evaluate and measure the quality of publisher-created online courses. Certified courses will carry The Quality Matters Program seal of approval.

“Independent validation by a respected third-party organization such as Quality Matters reinforces the confidence that WileyPLUS users develop from the experience of using it,” says Joe Heider, Senior VP & General Manager, Higher Education, Wiley. “The Quality Matters seal of approval demonstrates that WileyPLUS meets a standard of reliability from a course-design standpoint and delivers a solid presentation of course content.”

“Through our partnership with Wiley we are able to advance our mission of improving the overall quality of online learning by addressing the potential of publisher-designed courses,” says Ron Legon, Executive Director of The Quality Matters Program.

Educators who develop online courses and content are familiar with QM standards, and they recognize how students benefit from the rigor of these standards. Through this partnership, Wiley is helping improve the overall quality of online education and course materials by setting high industry standards as well as adhering to them.

The following Quality Matters standards are among those being used when certifying a course:

• Design: The overall design of WileyPLUS is clear. Students and instructors are provided with simple instructions on getting started, system requirements, an introduction to the course, etc.
• Learning Objectives: Learning objectives are clearly stated and explained. They assist students in focusing their efforts in the course.
• Assessment: Assessment strategies measure effective learning, evaluate student progress, and are designed to support the learning process.
• Resources & Materials: Instructional materials are comprehensive and contribute to the achievement of the stated learning objectives.
• Student Engagement: Meaningful interaction is employed to motivate and engage students.
• Support Materials: A comprehensive set of support resources are available to both students and instructors.
