Quality Matters (QM) is a non-profit organization that promotes and improves the quality of online course design through professional development and course peer review. Hagerstown Community College is a Higher Education Member of QM.

Applying the Quality Matters Rubric (APPQMR), QM's flagship workshop, is available from the Fletcher Faculty Development Center in a 2-week online format and a one-day in-person format. In addition to learning about the QM Rubric and the course review process, participants will learn to apply the concept of alignment and draft helpful recommendations for course improvement. APPQMR is the prerequisite for the Peer Reviewer Course, the required course to become a QM Peer Reviewer. Participants who complete the workshop earn a certificate of completion from QM.
