Edmentum, a leading provider of web-based individualized learning solutions, announces its recertification from the Quality Matters™ Program (QM), an international nonprofit organization representing broad inter-institutional collaboration and a shared understanding of online course quality. Edmentum continues to provide solid, research-based curricula built from the ground up to empower futures, one student at a time.

The Quality Matters assurance process includes an educator-centered, peer review that is designed to certify the quality of online courses and key components. The Quality Matters review team recently completed its biennial “Template Review” of Edmentum courses. This review must take place every two years for each publisher who wishes to submit additional individual courses for review moving forward. This review specifically looked at Edmentum’s overall Learning Management System and course architecture (i.e., technology specifications, user experience, navigation, student/teacher interaction capabilities, available tools, etc.).

After an extensive review, the QM team declared that Edmentum earned a perfect 49 out of 49 score on this template review. Thus, Edmentum earned another two years of overall QM certification.

“At Edmentum, providing high-quality education technology is core to our mission,” said Dave Adams, chief academic officer at Edmentum. “We are honored to be recognized by Quality Matters in this way and pleased to support their ongoing efforts to ensure that educators have access to high-quality programs.”

Edmentum’s online courses, accessible through both Plato Courseware and EdOptions Academy, have received the Quality Matters Certificate of Course Recognition, which confirms that both learning solutions meet Quality Matters’ stringent review standards for online education. Additionally, Edmentum continues to be one of the leading organizations in QM certifications. These recognitions help schools navigate the crowded marketplace to identify only the best options for online learning.
