QM’s review process is designed and implemented by faculty who teach online courses throughout the U.S. to ensure quality and alignment with accreditation standards and best practices in online learning. USFSP first joined QM in 2010 as a way to assist faculty with the development of high quality online courses.

Workshops this week in Online Learning

This week in OLITS we have two workshops scheduled.

First is MyStudio Booth on Tuesday March 17, 2015 from 2-3pm

The MyStudio Booth is a simple one button video recording setup that will capture a video image of the person as well as a computer display such as a PowerPoint presentation. MyStudio will allow users to create high-quality video projects without having to know anything about video cameras or editing. All you need is a little imagination and a flash drive. Join us as we show you how to get starting using the MyStudio Booth facilities.
