"The OLC Advanced Online Teaching Certificate was an excellent choice for me as an experienced online course designer and instructor. It focused on topics that experienced online instructors are most likely to need. The quality of the topics covered and the structure of the course made it logical and fun to participate in and work through. I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for ways to refresh their online courses and for anyone who might think they do not need to refresh anything!"
