TESLA Academy Virtual Education Innovators Program designed to help participants implement technology and innovative elearning solutions. This interactive course features:
What is my expected commitment? The certification course covers a total of 75 hours of instruction (37.5 hours per 3 credits issued). You will typically spend 3 to 6 hours per week on course work.
What does asynchronous mean? Asynchronous means that most coursework is done at your own pace and submitted by a deadline without the need to attend pre-scheduled time classes. Assessment largely occurs via weekly benchmarks that are conducted asynchronously. This course blends asynchronous off-line time with occasional synchronous online time via pre-scheduled Zoom sessions to participate in spontaneous discussion.
What if I miss a Zoom session? Each session is recorded and will be provided if you can’t attend.
What if I want to take my microcredential further? There is an advanced certification available through NYIT which is a graduate certification requiring an additional 6 credits and matriculation at NYIT. For information, go to: https://www.nyit.edu/degrees/virtual_education_advanced_certificate
What do I need to participate? Good internet connection and a desktop computer.
