The course is designed to introduce K-12 teachers and the community to blended and online learning. In the first 4 weeks of the course learners will gain introductory knowledge of K12 blended and online teaching and learning. During the last 4 weeks learners will use this new knowledge to start designing and developing effective K12 blended and online learning experiences for K12 students. The course content was developed based on standards written by the International Association for K12 Online Learning (iNACOL).
Through the successful completion of weeks 1-4 of this course, you will gain introductory knowledge of effective K12 blended and online instruction and be able to:

This class consists of the following elements:
We highly recommend that teacher groups or whole schools take the course together. We are providing a Facilitator's Guide to support teacher professional learning groups. Meeting once per week in a face-to-face environment to discuss, share resources, and peer critique is advised; however, each person should complete independent assignments…no group projects. Your projects may be closely related, though. For example, in this course you will design a blended or online unit for your class. If a grade level team at the same school decides to divide up the curriculum such that each teacher designs a separate social studies unit for his/her grade level team, then the grade level team’s projects would closely relate while not becoming a single group project. Think professional development jigsaw activity!
Don’t worry if you don’t have a colleague to work with, you can take this class alone. Really you will never be alone! You could harness Google Hangouts or Skype to work with someone you meet in the discussion forums. Don’t be bashful!
To help you plan your time, here is the expected weekly workload:
Week 1: (5 hours) January 13 – 19
Week 2: (5 hours) January 20 – 26
Week 3: (5 hours) January 27 – February 2
Week 4: (5 hours) February 3 – 9
Week 5: (10 hours) February 10 – 16
Week 6: (10 hours) February 17 – 23
Week 7: (10 hours) February 24 – March 2
Week 8: (<2 hours) March 3 – March 10
If you are taking this course with your professional learning network or grade-level team, we recommend setting aside 1-2 hours each week to meet face-to-face or synchronously to discuss key points, individual progress, resources, and to give peer feedback.
