The Teaching Online Certificate program is a structured, flexible program that provides multiple perspectives on best practices in designing, teaching, and engaging learners in an online course. This program allows you to work closely with a mentor to create an individualized learning plan, based on your own unique goals, to help gain valuable insight on a variety of topics from basic course design through online student engagement.

Using Blackboard, this program allows faculty to engage in online learning from a student perspective. Faculty can expect to spend about 5-7 hours to complete each week's assignment.
