Learning how to teach others online and through the mail is becoming popular as more schools are offering these types of programs. For those who already teach in a classroom, but who want to gain experience teaching in other forums, this degree program will help them communicate with students who are taking classes over the internet or by correspondence through the mail. Topics such as curriculum development, testing, lectures, and using message boards to communicate with students about individual needs will be discussed.
For students who want to make the transition from teaching in a classroom to teaching online, this certificate program will give them an overview of what to expect. As more people become interested in distance learning, more teachers will be needed to help teach courses. Students should be prepared to read materials and case studies, complete group projects, and be able to complete assignments in a timely manner.
