Catholic Distance Learning Network



"The Certification Course in Online Teaching and Learning offered by the Catholic Distance Learning Network is an excellent opportunity for Holy Apostles College and Seminary students and others who are interested in learning more about the world of online education. The course is divided into four modules that combine readings with practical experience. Two very knowledgeable and experienced instructors provide comments and suggestions. The range of projects and assignments allow participants to see how different technologies enhance the learning process. I would enthusiastically recommend the course to anyone who wants to have a better understanding of what is involved in the preparation and design of online courses.
