The Blackboard Exemplary Course Program is a course review rubric that reviews broadly course design, interaction, assessment and learner support. It includes descriptive criteria by category, ranging from incomplete to exemplary. There are three ways in which the rubric can be used – as a self, peer, or Blackboard certified Achievement review (Blackboard, n.d.).
Read the information at the Blackboard Exemplary Course Program site.
Then, review the actual rubric itself. In your journal, make some notations about the different categories that are used as compared to Quality Matters.
