OSCQR.SUNY.EDU is a resource sponsored and developed by the SUNY Online Teaching team as a companion to the OSCQR rubric.

The Online Learning Consortium (OLC) partnered with Open SUNY (now SUNY Online) in November 2016 and adopted OSCQR as their Online Course Quality Scorecard. The SUNY Online Teaching team continues to update and refine the rubric and associated resources.

Working with multi institutional teams of SUNY online instructional designers, librarians, distance learning directors, and technologists, the Open SUNY COTE Core Course Supports team began their work in 2013, which ultimately resulted in the OSCQR rubric, dashboard and course review and refresh process. We thank and recognize the Open SUNY Course Supports work group made up of Open SUNY+ Wave I & II campus volunteers from 15 SUNY institutions, and Open SUNY staff (past and present), for contributions to the initial versions and development of the rubric and dashboard.
