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.

Contact your OLITS Instructional Designer today to learn more about how we can support you in the course design, development, and quality review process.
