Certificate Program in Instructional Technology Management
Research shows that the field of e-learning is growing and many new professionals will be needed in the future. The certificate in ITM provides the opportunity for graduates to prepare for many roles within an organization; assessing performance goals, developing learning objectives, designing instructional materials, delivering curriculum in classrooms, online or in blended environments, and using new and ever-evolving technologies to improve human performance and reduce costs.
The certificate requires half number of credits and courses required for the M.S. in ITM (therefore, 18 credit hours/6 courses). Just like the M.S. in ITM, the ITM Certificate program combines theory, hands-on design experience, and management skills to provide learners with a theoretical and intellectual foundation of instructional design principles, methods and techniques. It provides an understanding of adult learning theories and the training to evaluate software, applications, programs, and methods in the context of the corporate training environment. This program provides opportunities to design, build, and implement multimedia and online projects for e-learning in corporate, government, or educational settings with an understanding of assessment and evaluation techniques. This program will also equip the learner with the leadership skills necessary to provide the vision, strategies, and solutions needed to create and sustain a learning culture. This certificate program is designed in the same context as the M.S. in ITM degree and is essential in the global corporate, organizational, or government training environments.
The ITM graduate certificate program provides an entry vehicle for those who want to further their education in ITM, but may not be ready to pursue the M.S. degree.
The certificate includes six courses:
ITM 600 Principles of Instructional Design
ITM 605 The Adult as Learner
ITM 610 Project Management
ITM 615 Web Design, Usability, and Visual Literacy
The other three ITM courses are elective requirements and can include any ITM course, except ITM 700, which is the M.S. Capstone project.
The tuition and fees for the ITM Certificate program are the same tuition and fees for the M.S. in ITM program.
