Comment: This site provided a very comprehensive rubric for assessing the quality of an online course. An excellent enhancement was access to a checklist of actual functions and content that complements the level of attaining the rubrics rating scale, e.g. baseline, effective, exemplary were also provided. Each year, exemplary courses using WebCT and Blackboard are chosen based on these rubrics and poster images of the faculty selected are posted on the site as well. This information not only provides clear guidance to achieve goals but also a way to acknowledge the excellence demonstrated in implementing quality online instruction.
