A new, 12-hour program from Emporia State University offers a graduate certificate in e-learning and online teaching. eLearning is popular in corporate, military and health-care sectors as well as post-secondary and K-12 education.
“For a variety of reasons, more businesses and organizations are moving training and education of employees online,” says Zeni Colorado, chair of Emporia State’s Instructional Design and Technology department. “More schools are exploring and implementing teaching and learning online.”
The Kansas Occupational Outlook Handbook forecasts 24.7 percent growth through 2020 for instructional designers and coordinators. The certificate provides online learning designers and teachers with research-based, best practices in online teaching and learning.
Students can begin this certificate during the spring, summer or fall semester depending on course availability.
