OHCC Open for Summer Registration

This Online and Hybrid Certification Course is designed to provide instructors with the knowledge and skills needed to deliver a high-quality online/hybrid course. Successful participants will also be able to teach effectively online through active facilitation and a variety of student engagement techniques and technologies. Training in Blackboard Basics (on the latest version of the LMS) is a prerequisite).

This is a six (6) week, rigorous course that includes weekly participation and assignment requirements. Please plan ahead to ensure you have the time to complete all of the required course activities. This training is much more than “Blackboard training”, as it includes elements of instructional design and strategies for building, developing, sequencing, and delivering online content. When you are done, you will have a template for your online and/or hybrid course.

This summer we will run one OHCC session. This course is six weeks long. Each week ends on Thursday at 11:59 p.m. (EST/EDT).You must complete the course, including the assignments for all six weeks, for certification. This includes the completion of your final presentation. Participants will:

  • Attend the campus session on Friday if they do not complete the previous week’s assignments.
  • Watch a Camtasia Relay recording if they do not attend the campus session.
  • Complete all online assignments (e.g. reading, discussions, learning activities).
  • Post content to an empty/template course in Blackboard.
  • Complete assessments or self-assessments.
  • Make a final presentation and submit a course evaluation.

The campus sessions are on Fridays, May 13th-June 24th, 1:00-2:30pm in 351 Main. This is a hybrid course (online course with some classroom instruction). However, you are not required to attend these campus sessions if the previous week’s work is completed. Those who do not attend will watch a video of the campus session.

If you need Blackboard Basics (the OHCC prerequisite), there is a face-to-face session scheduled on May 13th from 10:30 am-12:00 pm in 351 Main, or you can take the training online.
