QM11 Syllabus Review: Course Quality Assurance

How do I get started?

Please begin the process by visiting the EHE Course Quality Assurance site. This site will provide additional details and information for instructors to conduct a guided self-review of their course syllabus prior to submitting the syllabus for a QM11 Syllabus Review. 

Following the guided self-review, please use the request button on this site to upload your syllabus and connect with a team member who will review your documents and provide targeted feedback. 


An Instructional Designer will connect with you regarding your request. The review process typically takes 2 weeks.

What is a Course Quality Assurance review?

A detailed, non-evaluative examination to help guide, inform, and influence the design of online course development. Using research-based practices and standards, quality assurance measures can help instructors improve the quality, effectiveness, and efficiency of the course design and instruction. It is also a critical step in the curricular review process. Based on Quality Matters standards, Universal Design for Learning, Principles of Multimedia Learning, and ARCS Model of Motivation Design.

What reviews are possible?

An instructional designer can work with you to determine your individual quality assurance needs. Unless otherwise requested, an QM11 Review will be conducted in an effort to meet EHE Curriculum Committee approval for course requests. However, additional review mechanisms that can be utilized include (but aren’t limited to):

  • QM11 Review Form (Curriculum Committee approval for new courses and changes in delivery mode)
  • Quality Matters
  • Open SUNY Course Quality Review (OSCQR)
  • EHE syllabus template
  • Course alignment map
  • Universal Design for Learning
  • Principles of Multimedia Learning
  • ARCS Model of Motivation Design

Special Considerations

This service promotes the core idea of Exemplar Teaching and Learning within EHE’s Strategic Framework, corresponds with the teaching component of the promotion and tenure process, and can have a direct impact on student learning.
