Eteaching Endorsement Program

The WMU Eteaching endorsement program is designed to provide WMU instructors with the knowledge, skills and ability to effectively design, develop, and manage teaching and learning experiences facilitated through the use of a variety of Elearning technologies and methodologies. This hands-on program will be based on contemporary Elearning best practices, instructional design techniques, methods for ensuring quality, multi-modal/sensory learning object development, and accessibility considerations and compliance. Participants will develop, at a minimum, a web enhanced course that can be utilized in support of face-to-face instruction. Visit this page for dates and more information.

Elearning FUNDAMENTALS

Elearning Fundamental Training sessions are 1.5 hour meetings, and are open to all WMU instructors. These sessions cover the basics of using WMU's Elearning system, and are a good fit for those instructors who are new to online instruction, would like to learn how to use some of the online tools in their course, or who would like a refresher on the basic functions of Elearning.

We are now hosting a webinar version of this training during evening hours as well as business hours.
