Teaching Online Certification Course for New Faculty

The Teaching Online Certification Course for new faculty is an intensive online course offering faculty preparation in the skills needed to teach online at UMUC.  Any faculty member who wishes to teach online at UMUC must complete this training successfully.

During the course, faculty in training participate first in the role of students, learning how to use the various features of the system, such as submitting assignments and working in study groups. They are then placed in the role of teachers, with other trainees assigned to their "class." For this portion of the training, trainees learn how to create assignments, manage online conferences, and provide student feedback.  At the end of the training, trainees are evaluated on their attainment of a pre-established set of objectives and are certified upon successful fulfillment of these objectives.
