TOWSON, Md., July 25, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- CourseArc, an eLearning content creation platform, announces today its new partnership with Quality Matters (QM), the national leader in online learning quality standards. Quality Matters is using CourseArc to create content for new courses and workshops that will be delivered to their subscribers through Moodle, their learning management system. Highlights of new content developed with CourseArc include an update session for members about the new edition of the Rubric being released in July, content for this year's Master Reviewer Recertification course, and lessons for the new The ABCs of QM-Focused Research workshop.
Brenda Boyd, QM's Senior Academic Director: Program Services explains, "We are excited about working with CourseArc and their content tool. Quality Matters advances quality assurance for online learners and CourseArc will help our own professional development offerings meet our standards and provide learners with engaging, interactive and accessible content. We believe the integration of CourseArc into our processes will create a positive impact for the participants."
CourseArc believes quality really does matter, and are thrilled to have the leading organization in quality assurance for online learning using their content creation tool.
