WTAMU Recognized for Quality Online Learning


CANYON, Texas—West Texas A&M University has been nationally recognized with Quality Matters Certification for meeting course design standards in CHEM 1411 and CHEM 1412 Education On Demand courses following an official Quality Matters peer review.

Quality Matters, a nationally recognized, faculty-centered, peer review process that certifies the quality of online courses, has recognized Dr. Nick Flynn, professor of biochemistry and Ross Wilson Chair in Chemistry, and his commitment to quality assurance for designing courses that meet Quality Matters standards.

Quality Matters has developed a widely respected set of standards for the design of effective online courses and a rigorous, faculty peer review process for applying these standards to existing courses. Through this process, reviewers and subject matter experts provide instructors and instructional design teams with insight and recommendations that increase learner engagement, retention and satisfaction and ultimately, learner achievement.

“We wanted an outside organization to provide our course review, and Quality Matters has the expertise to certify online courses for quality,” Dr. James Andrews, director of external programming at WTAMU, said.
