New Certificate in eLearning and Online Teaching

The Instructional Design and Technology Department is offering a new, 12 hour graduate certificate in eLearning and online teaching. The worldwide market for eLearning reached $35.6 billion in 2011 and is expected to grow to $51.5 billion by 2016. 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. The certificate can be completed in addition to the Master’s Degree in IDT.  The 4 classes required for the certificate also count towards the Master’s degree.  Current students wanting to add the certificate, can do so by paying a $20 application fee.  All current and prospective students are eligible to complete the certificate. Unfortunately, IDT alumni are not eligible.
