The Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) has released their rubric for assessing online courses: Checklist for Evaluating Online Courses. The SREB is an educational technology cooperative in Atlanta, GA.
This description is from the introduction:
This checklist is based on the SREB report Standards for Quality Online Courses and is designed to assist states and schools in determining the quality and effectiveness of online courses. It is suggested that each course be rated on the extent to which it meets the criteria, with 3 indicating that a course does not meet the criteria and 1 indicating that it does. This evaluation is key to ensuring that online courses provide students with access to quality instruction and resources.
