Keystone College Learning at a Distance

Whether we are talking about a 15-week, asynchronous online course or a synchronous tool like Adobe Connect used to support a Weekender course, learning at a distance requires new skills and a new way of thinking about learning.  If you are currently a full-time or part-time faculty member, and you are interested in these new skills and alternative delivery strategies, talk with your Division Chair or Division eLearning Coordinator for information about getting certified. 

Beginning May 1, 2013, Keystone College is using Maryland Online's "Certificate for Online Adjunct Teaching (COAT)" program for instructional training.  This nationally-recognized 9-week course is required. For more information and for session dates, contact your Division Coordinators and/or click here: http://www.marylandonline.org/coat/
