Online Certificate of Completion/Degree Specialization in ONLINE LEARNING INNOVATION & DESIGN

Online learning is opening new doors for busy adults who want to expand their career options, and for corporate training applications. New technology makes it possible for students to learn, do schoolwork, and even participate in discussions at any time and from any place, but it has its challenges, too. To effectively teach or design curricula for an online environment, you’ll need to understand how this learning process is different from that in the traditional classroom.

 This program is specifically designed for anyone who teaches adult learners online, or who designs online learning curricula for adults. You’ll learn what makes an effective instructional design in any medium, how to accurately evaluate student progress in a distance-learning environment, and how to make the most of the latest online learning technologies.
