Did you know...

Open registration is almost upon us. As it gets nearer I thought those of you who might be interested in NMSU-A online courses might enjoy a few "Did you know" facts from Sherrell Wheeler. Here goes.....

Did you know that all of the courses taught in online or hybrid format at NMSU-A have been certified through a Quality Matters review? The review team includes a trained team of three faculty members: a Lead, a Subject Matter Expert and an External Reviewer. The lead is from NMSU-A and the other two are from colleges across the U.S. The team reviews the courses based on a set of 42 Standards that are based on best practices. Look for the QM logo on the homepage of your courses!

Do consider taking that online or hybrid course! Please Share! Thanks!
