Requirements to add an Online Teaching Endorsement to an existing certificate:
- Bachelor's degree
- Initial or professional certificate at any level
- Two elective courses
- Two required courses (both offered by PBS TeacherLine)
Note: Each course must be taken for graduate credit to be accepted for the endorsement.

TECH522 Online Facilitator Training I: Mastering the Skills of Online Teaching
Effective online facilitators must know how to provide formative feedback, offer technical guidance, foster community, and communicate “from the side” in a way that encourages learners to construct knowledge together. Through research-based articles and readings, discussions, collaborative projects, and other interactive experiences, you will have multiple opportunities to build and master online facilitation skills. To synthesize all your learning, you will create a case study based on the experiences of a hypothetical online facilitator as your final project.
