ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The Certificate program in Virtual Teaching (MOOC version) is a course that you can pursue at your own time and pace and become confident online teachers.
This immersive, online program will consist of a series of four modules covered over four weeks. This intensive program will prepare participants to leverage relevant research and voices from master teachers and experts in the field to design and facilitate online learning experiences using several Edtech tools and the XLS planning framework.
The participants can expect 2-3 hours of tasks each week. This will include time required to go through the video tutorials, read the texts and handouts, research & explore Ed tech tools; design and create lessons, self-assess your skills and interact with a variety of online tools for collaboration. Our aim is to share research-based strategies that teachers may adopt effectively and quickly. It will also provide mentoring and support from the facilitators and master teachers through continuous engagement on the discussion forums.
The culmination of the programme will be based on weightage given to the video tutorials, readings and assignments. On successful completion each participant will receive a Certification of course completion in Virtual Teaching.

Thanks mam for enriching us with these apps.
This has been very informative and I am just waiting to explore and work with my students. Thanks.
Enriching, informative and engaging. It was a perfect blend of knowledge and practice (tools shared). All facets of online education were touched upon and the course was designed to include all stakeholders in the process. Grateful and appreciative of the efforts of everyone who helped deliver this course to all of us.
This session was very informative, engaging and a new dimension to experiential learning was introduced to me. I would love to explore the multitude of online tools available to make my classes more interactive and engaging. It was an overall very enriching experience. Thanks to Payel Mam and all the facilitators.
A very well organised, comprehensive training program. Helped us to adapt ourselves with a wide range of tools during the phase of lesson delivery. The course design was very well done. Eminent, knowledgeable panelists, an excellent moderator and overall a positive learning spirit was maintained during the course. Thank you very much.
This webinar has boosted my confidence a lot and I feel the urge now to start exploring the multitude of online tools available to enrich my classes. Before, I used to instinctively shy away from technology but now I will definitely forge ahead keeping in mind, ‘It’s your prerogative to make mistakes’. Thank you very much for opening so many paths of learning!
