Launch’s Personal Finance course received a nationally recognized Quality Matters Certification Mark for meeting course design standards in an Official Quality Matters peer review.

At Launch, Quality Assurance Specialist Dr. Meghan Roe and Senior Digital Developer Linda Ayres work with a team of digital developers to make sure we create top-notch quality courses, and, as of February 19, we have a mark to prove it. Launch received its first nationally recognized Quality Matters Certification Mark for meeting course design standards in an Official Quality Matters (QM) peer review.
       Quality Matters, a nationally recognized, faculty-centered peer review process that certifies the quality of online courses, has recognized Launch’s commitment to quality assurance for designing a Personal Finance course that meets Quality Matters standards.
       Quality Matters has developed a widely respected set of standards for the design of effective online courses and a rigorous, faculty peer review process for applying these standards to existing courses. Through this process, reviewers provide instructors and instructional design teams with insight and recommendations that increase learner engagement, retention and satisfaction, and, ultimately, learner achievement. “We are proud of the quality of our courses, and we were happy for the review team from Quality Matters to agree with us,” says Dr. Roe. “The process was both positive and collaborative, and we look forward to submitting more courses this year for review.”
