MU Extension Course Quality by Design



Full course description

Course Introduction:

This site is not a "course" in the academic sense. There are no learning objectives, assignments, grades or course completion requirements.  This site is a resource and guide to help you implement MU Extension's online course continuous improvement process.  Your first time using our Course Quality Review process, consider the QCR something to aspire to, not a judgement on your existing course or a barrier to offering your course.

Here, you'll find information and resources to support Quality Course Reviews, the foundation of online course continuous improvement. There are several ways to leverage our Quality Course Review (QCR) form and resources.

  • Use the form and this site during online course development to build quality into your course.
  • Conduct a self-review of your course.
  • Request Learning and Teaching Services or peer conduct a QCR and work with you to revise your course. 

The site is organized by Course Quality Principles and contains a host of resources associated with each principle.
Principle 1: Initial Student Experience
Principle 2: Interaction and Engagement
Principle 3: Alignment
Principle 4: Technology, Support, Accessibility
Principle 5: Course Structure
