CT - Central Time
This is a two-week course designed to familiarize learners with the mission of the Institute for Discipleship and BeADisciple.com; the basics of building, planning, and teaching online courses; and the fundamentals of using the Blackboard software. This course is required for all instructors before building their own courses on BeADisciple.com, but is only required once. In the first week, participants will use the software as a student in order to experience its various features from the perspective of a student in an online course. Mid-week, learners will be given a practice course site to administer as if building and leading a course. Many who come into this How To course with ideas and plans for a course of their own end up developing much of their actual course structure in the second week. Upon completion of the How To course, participants will be certified to offer their own courses through BeADisciple.com. One live meeting time is set for the second Tuesday of the session at 10 a.m. Central Time. The session is not mandatory and will be recorded for later viewing for those who cannot attend. It is highly recommended that anyone new to BeADisciple first participate in a course as a learner before attempting this instructor training. This course is eligible for 1.0 CEU. Price: $100.
