QM Standard 6 – Course Technology
Technology used in the course should be accessible to students, aligned with course learning objectives, and students can expect a high quality experience using the technology. Instructions should be clear and students should know what to do in case of technology issues. Information on Blackboard help and IT support can be found in [/QM Standard 7 – Learner Support QM Standard 7 – Learner Support] and information on accessibility and usability can be found in [/QM Standard 8 – Accessibility and Usability QM Standard 8 - Accessibility and Usability].
There are a number of ways you can utilize accessible technology, provide students with clear instructions, and with information on where to go to get help. We've prepared some course technology examples for your review.
