Micro-Credential Courses

CCIT has created six Micro-Credential Courses (MCCs) to expand your teaching toolbox!  The below form will allow you to enroll into any or all of these courses giving you the opportunity to earn MCC Certificates. 

What is a Micro-Credential Course?

  • MCCs are courses that deliver content to learners in micro-moments.
  • The content is strategically chunked to essential aspects of the topic and each course includes three to four short modules. 
  • A badge is earned after completing each module and a certificate will be awarded after completion of the course.
