Dr. Reichgelt Receives Third QM Course Certification

Han ReichgeltIt is with great pleasure that we announce that Dr. Han Reichgelt, of USF St. Petersburg’s Kate Tiedemman College of Business, has received Quality Matters Certification for another of his online courses.  Please join OLITS in congratulating him on this achievement!

His graduate course, Data Visualization (ISM 6930), received QM Certification on November 2, 2018. In this course, Dr. Reichgelt guides students in the MBA program through the application of business intelligence and data analysis techniques to improve the quality of leadership decisions.

This is the 18th course to be certified within the Kate Tiedemman College of Business, and the sixth to be certified within the MBA Program. His course is now listed on the QM database of certified courses and will also be recognized in the Florida Virtual Campus public course catalog as a “High Quality” course.

This marks a continuation of the recognition of Dr. Reichgelt’s commitment to high quality learning experiences for his students as he has previously received certification for two of his other online courses. His undergraduate course, Business Process Analysis (ISM 4930), received certification on March 6, 2017 and his graduate course, ERP Systems Analysis (ISM 6930), received certification on March 9, 2017.

When asked about his advice for those preparing to go through the review process, he stated:

Thanks to the work OLITS and Karla Morris in particular, and thanks to the thorough work of the QM reviewers, the course has improved considerably and I would encourage every faculty member who teaches online to try to obtain QM certification for their courses.

Dr. Varol Kayhan Receives Second QM Course Certification

Varol KayhanPlease join us in congratulating Dr. Varol Kayhan for receiving Quality Matters Certification for another of his online courses!

His course, Database Design & Administration (ISM 4212), was awarded certification on October 29, 2018. In this course, Dr. Kayhan engages students with the concepts and principles of database management necessary for potential designers, users, and managers of database systems.

Dr. Kayhan has been involved with the Quality Matters review process at USFSP from the early stages. He received QM Certification for Information Systems in Organizations (ISM 3011) in 2012. He then took this course through the QM Re-Certification process in 2017.

When asked about his experiences and advice for those going through the process, he stated:

It is a pleasure to work with the OLITS team and specifically Karla. One suggestion I’d make to faculty who will go through a QM course certification is to follow the suggestions made by your instructional designer during your internal review. It will save you a lot of time and effort during the actual review.

We thank Dr. Kayhan for his continuing commitment to providing high-quality, online learning experiences to his students! His course is now listed on the QM database of certified courses and will also be recognized in the Florida Virtual Campus public course catalog as a “High Quality” course.
