The OLC Quality Scorecard for Blended Programs provides benchmarks and quality standards to help you evaluate your blended and hybrid learning programs. 

By using the scorecard, faculty, administrators and instructional designers can determine the strengths and weaknesses of those programs, identify opportunities for improvement within their own programs, and create a strategy for meeting benchmarks. 

Institutions can pursue a third-party, independent program review through OLC Program Review services. Those that achieve exemplary status may be eligible to display an OLC Quality Scorecard Endorsement logo on their website.

This quality scorecard was developed through a collaborative effort with experienced educators recognized for their background in this modality. They identified quality metrics for each of the 70 indicators in key categories, including: Institutional Support, Technology Support, Course Development and Instructional Design. Course Structure, Teaching and Learning, Faculty Support, Student Support, and Evaluation and Assessment.

If you prefer paper workbooks, you may purchase the Blended Learning Handbook through our Publications page.  

A free version of the Administration of Blended Learning Programs is also available to download. Contact to learn more about how your institution can benefit from a Program Review.



"The Quality Scorecard is grounded in research, best practices, and expert opinion, so I know the University is well-served by implementing the self-assessment process and demonstrating our continuous improvement processes and outcomes to accreditors."
