Science Interactive earns Quality Matters (QM) certification for its environmental science program following a detailed review process. The QM Certification Mark is the internationally recognized symbol of quality in online and blended course design.

“Developed by our in-house team of PhD scientists, instructional designers and online education experts, the Environmental Science program is the third discipline in our portfolio to receive QM certification,” said Tim Loomer, CEO of Science Interactive. “This certification helps us continue to fulfill our mission of providing a quality science curriculum and hands-on learning to all distance learning students, and we plan to submit additional online courses for Quality Matter approval in the near future. “, said Loomer.

The official QM exam has provided independent validation of the quality, learner-centered course design found in Science Interactive’s Environmental Science curriculum.
