Abstract: Quality Matters™ (QM) is a set of standards to measure the quality of instruction and design in online or hybrid courses. Adopted by a growing number of institutions nationwide, QM is based on best practices and instructional design research. To meet or exceed QM standards requires that resources and learning activities in an online course utilize the latest tools and technologies. In many instances, Web 2.0 technologies are the most appropriate for supporting this course content. This paper will give an overview of the QM Standards and Rubric; and demonstrate how Web 2.0 technologies may be utilized to meet QM requirements.
