Agriculture eLearning Development - Certificate

The Agriculture eLearning Development Certificate is an innovative program that prepares students across the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences with the unique knowledge and skills required to develop sophisticated eLearning courses and training programs for their Ag disciplines. Students will gain a substantive foundation of learning theory, adult education, instructional design, and computer programming from an eLearning perspective. This program is also approved for delivery via asynchronous distance education technology.

The program includes a capstone experience to solidify skills and enhance the graduate experience.  The capstone experience will be tailored to individual student needs in consultation with a member of the certificate committee. Examples of appropriate activities include, but are not limited to:  development of a web page, development and delivery of online courses, or course design for training programs and/or learning units.

Students may complete this certificate as part of a degree program, as a certificate option only (non-degree status), or as continuing education. No continuing education unit credits will be awarded. When completed as part of a degree program or as a certificate option only (non-degree status), the certificate completion will appear on the transcript.
