Each December, the Office of Distance Learning recognizes hybrid and online courses that have earned ULearn Certification through an internal faculty peer-review process. These courses implemented a set of design standards outlined by Quality Matters. To earn certification, these courses met all 21 essentials standards and earned a total score of at least 84 out of 99 possible points (or 85%). We are proud of the commitment to quality that these faculty have demonstrated by participating in the review and implementing changes to ensure a quality course experience for their students.
