Center for Educational Research, Technology and Innovation (CERTI)
Many educators who have come to RCRC/CERTI workshops in the past have expressed to us that it is difficult getting release time to attend workshops during the school day, so we decided to offer some of our resources in the form of a MOOC. Unfortunately, since there is no credit involved with these courses, we cannot offer Act 48 credit.
CERTI is excited to announce that we will be offering a free MOOCs to educators. Registration for the MOOCs will be available on the Desire2Learn OpenCourses website in September.
