I thought the Quality Matters certification is a great way to help guide instructors who are interested in creating online or blended learning classes. I have taken online classes where there is no student to student or student to instructor interaction. These online classes consist of an assignment being uploaded each week and the student completing the work. It tends to create a cold environment, which I do not prefer. The Quality Matters helps instructors also create course objectives that are measurable and flow with the content they are teaching.
