It also provides instructions for UConn faculty and staff to create a QM account and use QM resources, including access to the QM rubric. The University Senate Scholastic Standards Subcommittee's Online Course Standards Subcommittee endorses the use of the QM rubric as a guideline for the development of online courses. eCampus uses Quality Matters as a baseline measure of quality in online course design.
