New certificate in eLearning and online teaching offered
June 17, 2014
A new, 12-hour program from Emporia State University offers a graduate certificate in eLearning 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,” said Dr. Zeni Colorado, chair of Emporia State’s Instructional Design and Technology department. “More schools are exploring and implementing teaching and learning online.”
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.
“With a required 12 credit hours, this program will allow someone who wants to teach online and/or become a designer for eLearning, to complete the certificate within 10 months or less,” explained Colorado. “In addition, if desired, students completing this program will be 12 credit hours closer to completing a master’s degree in Instructional Design and Technology.”
A master’s degree in Instructional Design and Technology equips professionals in a variety of fields to use digital tools and design curriculum for the purpose of instruction.
The certificate can also be completed to supplement any other graduate degree program at Emporia State University. All current and prospective students are eligible to complete the certificate. For more information, go to http://www.emporia.edu/idt.

New SkyPrint Credits!!
January 31, 2014
At the start of the Spring 2014 semester, all currently enrolled students were given 100 free pages in their SkyPrint accounts. If you had leftover free pages from last semester, there is no carry-over; you will start over with 100 again. If you had paid for more printing, we merely added 100 pages to your account. Questions may be directed to the IT Help Desk.
