EdisonLearning, a longtime innovator in public education and leading provider of digital learning solutions for grades 6-12, has earned the Quality Matters (QM) Certification Mark, following a rigorous review process for virtual and blended course design quality.
The Quality Matters (QM) Certified courses are part of EdisonLearning’s 150+ full eCourses in core and elective subjects for Grades 6-12, plus Career and Technical Education (CTE), social-emotional learning (SEL) and student empowerment content, and nearly 50 embedded project-based learning (PBL) units focused on mastery.
According to Quality Matters, “The QM Certification Mark is the internationally recognized symbol of online and blended course design quality and represents EdisonLearning’s ongoing commitment to creating learning environments that provide learners with a clear pathway to success.”
The QM Official Review provided independent validation of the quality, learner-focused course design found in: Language Arts - 8th Grade; Algebra 1 (Competency Based); Mathematics - 8th Grade; and Spanish 1 (Competency Based). These courses are now listed on the QM directory of certified courses.
“Virtual and blended learning have become powerful solutions to improve students’ access to a high-quality education, regardless of their life circumstances, socioeconomic status or zip code,” said Thom Jackson, President and CEO of EdisonLearning. “We are pleased with the QM Certification, and proud to be a member of Quality Matters, since both validate our dedication to continuous improvement, including the innovative work of our curriculum designers and educators involved with the certified courses.”
In addition to the virtual eCourses EdisonLearning provides to individual schools and districts, the company is now offering to parents and students an engaging at-home learning experience through EdisonLearnNow®.
