Online Training

I have been taking an online course from Quality Matters (an online quality assurance organization) that Truman State University requires before developing and teaching online courses. The Design program is looking to take an initial course online and this is our first step in going online. Myself and two other design instructors are taking the course. Hopefully, this will lead to more “online” content from me in the future (before and after retirement).

I think what we are leaning to do for an online course will benefit all our courses (the traditional on-campus course). Always learning some new.

For more information check out the course.
