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. It would 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 ITM M.S. degree that of the global corporate, organizational or government training environment.
