The Certificate in Online, Instruction, Learning and Technology is designed for professionals who work with the design and delivery of information and instruction in an online environment. The series of five courses is grounded in research and best practices and provides the participant with foundational knowledge of best practices, instructional and assessment strategies and practical applications in online learning environments. This program is applicable for all professional fields that offer online instruction and/or professional development.
Students will complete a sequence of five online classes that immerse them in the process that participants in their courses would experience; model the strategies that they would employ and utilize in the teaching of an online course; and provide opportunities for the development of their own course material through the learning process. The capstone course is where the participant synthesizes their learning in the design, development, and implementation of an actual online course.
