UCF and EDUCAUSE Partner to offer Free BlendKit2014


Monday, March 31, 2014

Through the partnership of UCF and EDUCAUSE, we are excited to announce the availability of a free updated BlendKit 2014:  Becoming a Blended Learning Designer MOOC. Blended learning (the strategic combination of face-to-face and online learning experiences) is growing in popularity within higher education and K-12 settings around the world.   Participants will consider key issues and gain practical step-by-step guidance in producing materials for a blended course. 

Registered participants may also choose to pursue an official "UCF/EDUCAUSE Certified Blended Learning Designer" credential.   Those who choose this more rigorous option will submit the materials they develop as part of the free MOOC for a portfolio review.  This portfolio review is available for an $89 fee.  The course is facilitated by Dr. Kelvin Thompson, Associate Director for UCF's Center for Distributed Learning and a graduate faculty scholar within UCF's College of Education & Human Performance and Dr. Linda S. Futch, Department Head, Course Design and Development, for the UCF Center of Distributed Learning.
