IU South Bend is committed to offer quality online education, just as we do on our physical campus. There are different ways to demonstrate outstanding in online teaching, one of which is to apply Quality Matters (QM) principles in course design.

For this award, a fully online course is defined as a course taught 100% online. This includes courses that are taught as part of the IU Online Class Connect (IUOCC) and/or joint degree programs, or as a fully online course for IU South Bend students. A hybrid/blended course has 26% to 99% of the course taught online.
