The Course Review helps instructors meet certain recommendations as they create online courses. The Course Review is specifically for new online courses, but it is optional for all online and on-campus courses.

SUU has subscribed to Quality Matters (QM), which is a nationally recognized online course quality program. Quality Matters fundamentals have been incorporated into the Course Review.
