Testimonial

"I have taught online for over 10 years, but I needed to break out of my usual way of doing things, and do an honest appraisal of my courses. The Online Learning Consortium made me scrutinize, in depth, everything from my course learning objectives to my course design, rubrics, assignments, and discussions, and I feel my students will benefit from what I have learned from this course. I am excited to apply my new strategies and assignments, created to engage my online students with the material, each other, and myself."

Dr. Stephanie Babb, Associate Professor of Psychology, University of Houston-Downtown (Advanced Certificate)
