Educators face several challenges while teaching online courses. Some of the challenges are design of course contents, delivery method, and effective communication. The objective of this paper is to explain transformation process of an industrial engineering technology course which has traditionally been taught in the classroom environment to online courses. The methodology used for this transformation is the guidelines and standards outlined in Quality MattersTM (QM) Rubric which is a national benchmark for online course design. The Quality Matters Higher Education Rubric has a set of 8 general standards and 43 specific review standards. Out of these 43 specific review standards, 21 are considered essential and each standard is worth 3 points, 14 are considered very important and each standard is worth 2 points and remaining 8 are considered important and each is worth 1 point. Any an online course to be effective course should have minimum overall evaluation score of 84 when evaluated by QM Peer Reviewers. In this paper, taking quality control course as an example, how technical engineering course can be developed as an effective online course has been explained. Quality control course is a mandatory course in all undergraduate degree in industrial engineering and industrial engineering technology programs.
