Online Teaching Certification Course

Designed for instructors with limited online experience, this free online non-credit course consists of a series of stand-alone, self-paced modules that cover the essential elements of successful online instruction.

The course presents the seven principles of good practice and shows you how to implement them. Another module focuses on appropriate use of technology and how to implement it into your pedagogy, and the course concludes with an examination of efficient classroom administration. After reviewing the materials and completing the assessments, you'll receive your certification of instructional effectiveness!

"Many of my online students have been a little older than my on-campus students. They bring a wealth of real-life experience into the classroom, and, because there’s a lot of discussion in my courses, that really enriches the learning experience for all the students."
