The Basic Subscription works best for an organization that isn’t part of a larger system, but is interested in improving course design.  At this point, you’re not ready to conduct your own Official Subscriber-Managed Course Reviews, but you do want to empower faculty to use Self and Internal Review tools. Using the QM Higher Ed Rubric, your organization can begin to understand what a high-quality course looks like and start testing the waters by applying QM Standards. Organizations can also leverage QM tools and discounts on professional development to engage faculty and staff in evaluating the quality of their courses. If you’re interested in facilitating your own Applying the QM Rubric workshop (rather than having faculty and staff take it through QM), then you might be interested in a Full Subscription.
