Program Overview

The Online and Blended Learning graduate certificate provides the skills people need to teach effectively in online and blended environments, whether they are teaching an entire course online or integrating web-based activities into a traditionally taught class. Students examine recommendations from research, design their own instructional modules and develop effective strategies for delivering online and blended instruction.

For educators interested in the growing field of online and blended instruction, the Educational Technology program offers a certificate in Online and Blended Learning and Teaching. It is not endorsed by the state of Ohio, nor does it confer any official state licensure. It is a federally approved certificate program sponsored by the university.

The certificate is awarded for taking the three required courses, (9 credit hours altogether). The courses can be taken in any order (no prerequisites) and can be combined with the general master’s degree in Educational Technology.

  • Certificates must be completed within six years after the first graduate enrollment

Admissions Requirements
