Course Quality Review Tools

To help campuses ensure that their online courses are learner centered and well designed, a team of Open SUNY staff and campus stakeholders has designed the OSCQR rubric, a customizable and flexible tool for online course quality review.


When developing your course, it's important to think about how to make your course inclusive and accessible to all learners, regardless of physical or learning disabilities.

Excellent self-paced tutorials for increasing digital accessibility are available through Deque University. Request access to their full collection of courses here: Deque University Accessibility Training

If you are interested in earning a certificate and badges for accessibility and Universal Design for Learning, register for the public self-paced course "Accessibility: Designing and Teaching Courses for All Learners" that was created by SUNY Buffalo State & SUNY Empire State through a SUNY IITG grant.
