Testimonials

"As someone who was completely new to online teaching, the Online Design and Delivery course offered a perfect starting point for me to learn about the topics and key elements involved in the process. This course was very intuitive and provided me with the support and the tools necessary to feel more confident and comfortable in starting to design and then deliver online courses."

Anna Maier, English in Canada Program Coordinator, Dalhousie University's Faculty of Open Learning & Career Development

"There was a lot of good topics in this course, however, I think the part that helped me the most was the first unit on "Learning Outcomes" - the videos were very informative and I felt the flow and layout was really done well.  As a fairly new training specialist, I felt this course gave a me a good foundation to start my journey of building and designing training programs.  I would absolutely recommend this course for anyone who wants to get more insight on delivering and design training."
