The main purpose of this study was to improve the quality of online courses in Indiana University’s adult education graduate program. Researchers utilized Quality Matters™ (QM) standards to evaluate the courses. A total of 24 students from five courses participated in the evaluation process. Three peer instructors also evaluated the courses based on the QM standards. The evaluations of both cohorts suggested the following: (1) the adult online graduate courses fulfilled the key components of QM standards in general; (2) students’ evaluations of the courses were quite consistent with the peer instructors’ evaluations; (3) areas identified as needing improvement were: to provide sufficient information about accessibility, technical support, and course orientation, and descriptions of instructional materials. Suggestions for improvement were discussed.
