Quality Matters (QM) has certified Barry University’s HRD 647 Instructional Design course used in the School of Education’s Organizational Learning and Leadership (OLL) graduate program, giving the online course their QM seal. Quality Matters has developed a widely respected set of standards for the design of effective online courses and a rigorous peer review process for applying these standards to existing courses. Through this process, the online course is vetted to ensure increased learner engagement, retention and satisfaction, and learner achievement.
This successful effort was spearheaded by Dr. Lyndon Godsall — instructional designer and curriculum coach for the College of Nursing and Health Sciences, and adjunct instructor for the School of Education. He is a seasoned educator who teaches courses in Instructional Design and Teaching with Technology.
