“The Online Teaching Certification program was an extremely helpful series of online courses that provided me with tools and best practices to take online teaching to a higher level. I have made great connections with professional contacts and industry experts that I continue to correspond with, despite having completed the program. The individual workshops culminate into a unique program that provides a refreshing academic body of knowledge about online instruction that has amazing practical benefits and applicability, regardless of the size and focus of your institution.”
