The Online Teaching Endorsement program prepares educators to design, facilitate, and manage
instruction in an online format. Participants are prepared to assume a role as leaders in online learning
for their organization. The endorsement consists of four courses focused on the characteristics and
instructional methods of developing, delivering, assessing, and administering online courses from the
classroom to the organizational system level. The Online Teaching Endorsement will be beneficial to K12
and higher education teachers, as well as instructional designers, and administrators.
