Online Course Review Rubric

Online courses are offered at universities and colleges all over the world and students can take online courses anywhere to pursue their degrees in higher education.

Most universities that provide quality online course attract students. If we aspire to be the university-of-choice, and if we want to attract more students, we must provide quality online courses taught by dedicated faculty members.

To ensure the quality of the online courses offered at UA Fort Smith, we must have course review before any online courses are released and we must have periodic review of all the online courses to ensure quality. Any oversight in this process will have long term effects and will take substantial efforts to overcome.

The following is the UA Fort Smith online course development and review rubric. This rubric is used by college deans to determine if an online course has met the quality standards set forth by the university.
