What is the heart beat of QM on campus? What does QM adoption mean for faculty, instructional designers, administrators and professional staff responsible for online course quality? What effect do institutional factors (size, research status, private/public, union/non-union/adjunct faculty, mission, tenure/promotion, etc.) have on how QM is adopted?
