Online Teacher Certification Courses
ETOM now offers two levels of Online Teacher Certifcation: beginning and advanced.

Successful participants will be able to set up the design for a general course framework, including an organizational scheme (using BlackBoard, Angel or Moodle CMS) and course management policies.
The new Advanced Online Teacher Certification Modules are designed to provide the next level of online teaching certification and includes modules on Creating Multimedia Content, Incorporating Video and Audio, Integrating Social Applications, Live Tools, and Emerging Technologies.
