Become a Certified Online Teacher!
September 13, 2010
While we continue to add more online courses, we do have a shortage of instructors who are APS certified to teach online. The online environment is more than posting your documents and accessing resources or communicating via email. A quality online course will embed assessments where student interaction is of paramount importance. Online learning can be a solitary experience for students, so it is important there is much student interaction through the use of discussion boards, blogs, wikis and group projects.
We encourage you to enroll in the APS Online certification class. This is a 10 week course taken online for current APS teachers. We feel that it is important the teacher experience the different roles in the online environment - as an online student, instructional designer and instructor.
If you have not had any experience in the learning management system, we also offer classes in Blackboard.
