"The Advanced Online Teaching Certificate Program was a tremendous experience! The ability to learn from the facilitator and the others in the program really made the experience engaging and valuable. I know that I have grown as an instructor because of this program. I have a more clear understanding of my strengths and weaknesses as an online instructor. I also have a more clear idea of how to make the improvements that are needed in my courses to help remedy the weaknesses because of the program and those that were in the program with me. I know that what I have learned here will have benefits that go beyond just me. It will benefit my students, my colleagues, and my institution."
