Two Tri-C Professors Earn QM Recognition for Their Courses!

Congratulations to Professors Mike Piero and Raj Mohan on having their courses Quality Matters recognized this summer!

Professor Mike Piero’s course English 2360, British Literature II, received QM recognition.  Previously Professor Piero achieved QM recognition for his English 1020 course.

Professor Raj Mohan’s Course English 1020 achieved QM recognition.  This is the second course that Professor Mohan has had recognized by Quality Matters – she also has had English 1010 recognized.

What does earning Official QM recognition mean? 

The Quality Matters Rubric is a set of 8 general standards and 41 specific standards used to evaluate the design of online and blended courses.  To become officially QM Recognized a course: 1) Completed review by a 3-person trained team, including one Master Reviewer, one Subject Matter expert and at least one External Reviewer), 2) Meet All of the 3-Point essential standards, and 3) Earn a total overall score of 81 out of 95 points.  Learn more about the course review process on QM’s site here:

Please join us in congratulating Professors Mike Piero and Raj Mohan for their excellent work on behalf of student success online.  The Quality Matters recognition process is a rigorous one, and both have had a huge commitment to the design and building of their courses.  I’d also like to congratulate our instructional designers who worked with them to prepare – Cheryl Knight form Metro Campus, and Rachel Harmon from Westshore Campus.
