E-LEARNING CERTIFICATION - OVERVIEW
The Educational Technology program is committed to offering an E-Learning Certificate, a fully Web-based, graduate-level, non-degree program in the area of distance education with an emphasis on e-learning. The 12-hour certificate program targets e-learning practitioners seeking a graduate certificate and those who show interest in teaching/learning online initiatives in higher education or at e-learning industries.
The goal of the E-Learning Certificate program is to prepare student candidates to serve as effective online educators by advancing knowledge and skills in electronic learning, both conceptual and practical. With the advanced studies in the graduate program, these candidates are also able to meet changing job requirements in response to current trends in e-learning.
Please note that the 12-credit-hour program is not the same as a state teaching license. The certificate is offered through The University of Texas at Brownsville.
