In an effort to improve student retention, the Online Course Design Quality Assurance Standards are provided to establish internal quality assurance guidelines for online and blended/hybrid courses as well as to further establish a culture of quality in online education at the university. The standards are developed from nationally recognized, research-based online course design review standards with a goal of promoting and assisting faculty with the development of quality online courses at UA Little Rock.
There are three internal levels of quality:
Bronze – established through use of the UA Little Rock Default template (all courses)
Silver – Minimum standard of quality expected for all online courses
Gold – Internal level of excellence in online (Meets 23 Quality Matters Essential standards)
