Instructional Technology offers a graduate-level certificate program in web-based learning. This certificate offers students an opportunity to gain expertise in the areas of designing and developing web-based learning environments within corporations, non-profit organizations, healthcare, higher education, and K-12 education.
The web-based learning certificate is a combination of two professional development sequences—one in Instructional Design and the other in Online Pedagogy. A student who completes this certicate, then, will actually earn three different credentials.
The courses for the professional development sequence in Instructional Design are as follows:
Needs Assessment & Program Evaluation (IT505)
Instructional Systems Design (IT 510)
Web Design for Instruction (IT486)
The courses for the professional development sequence in online pedagogy are as follows:
Tools for Online Teaching and Learning (IT567)
Design & Development of Online Lessons, Courses, and Modules (IT568)
Managing and Facilitating the Online Classroom (IT569)
The two professional development sequences constitute the certificate.
