Oklahoma Quality Matters (OKQM)
Quality Matters (QM) is a global organization leading quality assurance in online and innovative digital teaching and learning environments. It has advanced quality assurance practices in online teaching and learning for over a decade. QM in Oklahoma started in September 2010 with three institutions combining their individual subscriptions.
OKQM is licensed to offer three Quality Matters dedicated workshops in state, offering members a significant discount compared to QM national workshops and a chance to work with their own peers from across Oklahoma. You may register for upcoming OKQM Dedicated Workshops using the link below. If no OKQM workshops are available, you may visit the Quality Matters website to search for additional offerings.
*The fee covers the $35 QM Technology fee and cost associated with providing facilitators. Late registrations will incur an additional $10 fee.
