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.

Here are our current Micro-Credential opportunities:

Alternative Assessments – In this micro-credential course, you will design an alternative assessment from scratch! You’ll explore and apply the principles of effective alternative assessments to create an assessment that will empower your students.

HTML Templates – In this micro-credential course, you will explore what HTML templates are in D2L and how to apply them to your courses to create content that meets the needs of your students.

Virtual Reality In this micro-credential course, you will be introduced to Virtual Reality, as well as how to create and curate Virtual Reality (VR) content to create engaging student activities.

How to Build a Course – In this micro-credential course, you will explore how to build a course in D2L starting from the design stage. You will walk through the Course Design Matrix and discover ideas for activities and engagement before building directly in a D2L Course Shell.

Digital Accessibility – In this micro-credential course, you will explain the importance of web accessibility and identify common barriers to online content, apply digital accessibility guidelines to online content in D2L, and create digitally accessible content within D2L.

Instructor Presence and Student InteractionsThis Micro-Credential Course (MCC) was developed to introduce faculty to Instructor Presence and Student Interactions. A better understanding of these two topics prepares an instructor to connect with their students, build community, and enhance learning in their classrooms.

Each of these courses is self-paced, but you will receive feedback from the instructor to continue to grow in the skill area. Feel free to reach out to the instructor in each MCC if you have any questions! 

Once you are enrolled, the course will remain open. Check back often as we plan to continue to offer more micro-credential courses in the future.
