Quality Design Components

The Ferris Online Course Quality Rubric was created by a team of eLearning staff and Ferris faculty for adoption in 2018. The rubric items were developed through reviewing established course quality standards such as found in Quality Matters and Blackboard Exemplary Course Program and customizing the standards to fit with specific Ferris State University initiatives. Courses designed using a Ferris Course Development Agreement (CDA) must meet all standards.
