    Online Teaching Training

    Since there's been some interest lately from people looking to break-in to the world of online teaching , I thought it would be useful and fun to start a thread about some non-credit (and therefore relatively inexpensive) online teaching training programs.

    Here are a few to get started, feel free to add to it, or provide feedback if you've completed any of them.

    Duke University - The most expensive of the bunch, but $400 isn't bad to get Duke into your resume.

    University of California-Irvine Extension - This a specialization through Coursera, the whole program is 5 items (4 courses and a capstone), you can take one, all, or a mix. If you take them all, it comes out to around $250-300. Again, not bad for a brand name like UCI .

    Washington State University - The cheapest of them all, it's designed for WSU faculty, but anyone can take it for a $25 fee (it's free for WSU faculty).

    That's unfortunate, when did you take it?

    Hi Bruce,

    I attended the program this past April. The class is four weeks long--which I felt was not enough to gain substantial experience. There was group work, and not enough people to consist of a meaningful group. For example, I signed up the first week for my group topic assignment. I ended up being the only member in my group. Last I recall, a group consist of more than one person.

    Great post! Thanks for this. I read through most of the programs.

    Just FYI, a few of these prices have gone up.

    Central Michigan University
    - w/ 1 graduate credit, $375 (plus $50 admission fee if not already a student)
    - Non-Credit option, $295

    Rutgers University
    - $100 per class, total of $400 for all four (this price only applies to Rutgers faculty/staff/current grad students)
    - $300 per class, total of $1200 for all four (this price is for everybody else)

    I went ahead and signed up for the $25 class with Washington State University . I'll probably do another program later, but I figure this is a low-threat, small investment to get me started. I'll let you know how it goes.
