I follow Dr. Marina Kostina's work several years and I am very happy for offering the Distance Learning Pedagogy class. This course has over 60 minutes video lectures, more that 50 supplemental materials (files, videos and web resources) and it is approved for CEU credits by the University of Iowa. Yes, after completing each lecture you can take the corresponding Exam to get your CEU credits. Total of 115 CEU Credits approved by University of Iowa.
The Distance Learning Pedagogy course provides you basic understanding of the nuances of this educational environment and empowers you to reconsider your role as a teacher, get insights into the psychology of online learners, adapt your traditional materials for distance learning, create project- and problem-based activities, utilize Web 2.0 tools and leverage social media for more connection, collaboration, engagement and enjoyment.
