Our Students Say. . .

"Instructional Design for Online Learning is a great model for anyone who is considering online or hybrid instruction. It is very well structured and facilitated, the content is engaging, and it encourages communication among students – all, I believe, key criteria for a quality online course."
~ Margie Konik, Health Information Technology, Chippewa Valley Technical College
Stanley, Wisconsin


 
"One of the aspects that I discovered as valuable, was the knowledge that the instructor was in my corner. She desired for me to be successful, and she incorporated the resources I needed to make this happen. … Through taking this course, I have become increasingly aware of the human component. I see more clearly the value of increased appropriate instructor presence on the discussion board."
~ Traci Skog, Graduate Student
Baldwin, Wisconsin

 

"I only wish that I had enrolled in a course like this at the beginning of my venture into online teaching. This course showed me some really helpful tools and strategies that we can use to improve how we work and evaluate our courses... Anyone who is teaching online or thinking about teaching online should take this course."
~ Ginnie Fleming, Online Instructor Grades 4-6
West Chester, Pennsylvania
