Full course description


This capstone course will guide you along the path to earning your Certificate in Course Design Fundamentals, and to building an online course that will engage students, support their learning and your teaching, and align to the OEI Course Design Rubric. 

To earn the certificate, you can choose to take the flagship, 12-week course Online Education Standards & Practices, or customize your learning by taking a combination of 4-week and 1-week courses aligned to the OEI Rubric. 

After the completion of your required courses, you'll present your course and demonstrate the ways the course aligns with the OEI Course Design Rubric to support student success. 


By the end of this program, you will be able to design an online or hybrid course in Canvas that is aligned to the OEI Course Design rubric.


The capstone is the culminating course for the Certificate in Course Design Fundamentals.
