Note the event at SFCC on the Quality Matters (QM) process to evaluate online courses. Contact Aimee Colmery at SFCC for more information (contact info below). Evaluating the quality of online courses is important. IDEAL-NM has implemented the NACOL standards for the high school courses being rolled out, and Quality Matters (QM) can be a very useful peer review process.
