The time has come for all faculty members certified to teach online and hybrid courses to refresh their credentials by registering for the QM Higher Education Rubric, Sixth Edition Update.

The course is free, self-paced and should only take three hours to complete. However, instructors can start and stop as many times as they wish between now and Nov. 30.

Instructors will learn:

  • How the Sixth Edition Rubric differs from the Fifth Edition.
  • Changes that have been made to the Course Worksheet and the Glossary.
  • Changes that have been made to the Course Review Management System.

To successfully complete the Rubric Update, faculty must also score 85% or greater on the Rubric Update Quiz.

Faculty must submit certificates of completion to the Office of Distance Learning by Dec. 4.

Failing to meet these deadlines will result in a certification lapse. To continue teaching online and hybrid courses, faculty will need to be recertified through a two-week workshop.

For information on how to register for the course, reach out to the Instructional Support Team at
