To promote excellence in distance learning instruction and administration.
Instructors, administrators, managers and trainers involved in distance learning or preparing for leadership roles in distance learning.
The program curriculum, developed by the University of West Georgia, is based on cutting-edge distance education techniques and proven methodologies. Course modules will be led by intructors and administrators experienced and recognized in distance learning. Guest lecturers will be involved "virtually" during the course.
The certificate program is a professional program that offers 8.7 CEU credits. It is offered completely on-line with no residency requirement. It comprises three seven-week modules which incorporate conceptual knowledge into practical learning experience. It is suggested that participants spend about 3-5 hours per week participating in on-line bulletin boards, reading materials, and completing exercises. Many of the exercises are optional, but regular participation on the course bulletin board is required for graduation.
