"The program was excellent and truly prepared me, along with workshops at my University, for the online course that I am currently teaching. The most important key learnings were (1) managing a learning community and maintaining facilitator presence; (2) writing meaningful and accurate learning objectives, syllabi, and assignments; and (3) making online discussion assignments meaningful."

Dr. Janine Aronson, Professor of Management Information Systems, The University of Georgia (Certificate Program)
