Online Teaching Certification

Hello CC Faculty,

At the beginning of this academic year, our Distance Education Coordinator stepped down from their position. During this academic year, the Faculty Senate, the Technology Based Learning Committee, and Academic Affairs will draft a Faculty Coordinator job description for Distance Education Coordinator.

At this time, faculty interested teaching online may complete the @One Online Network of Educator’s Certificate in Online Teaching and Design to fulfill the training requirement. The District will pay for the registration fees for the courses. 


Register and pay for the four required courses*:

  1. Introduction to Course Design
  2. 10-10-10 Communication that Matters
  3. Assessment in Digital Learning
  4. Creating Accessible Course Content

*Please note that the 12-week comprehensive course is not available at this time. Those who are interested in completing the Certificate Online Teaching and Design training must complete Pathway 2, which is four 4-week courses. You may take multiple courses at the same time.

Send registration receipts to your division office. Upon completing each module, send completion documentation to your division office for reimbursement. You will be reimbursed for each module after successful completion. In addition, when you complete the Certificate in Online Teaching and Design, please submit a copy of that to both your division office and your department chair.

STEP 2: Complete @One Capstone Project

In addition to coursework, participants seeking a Certificate in Online Teaching & Design will complete a capstone project (the capstone project is built into the 12-week pathway).This will involve developing an orientation module and one content module in your Canvas sandbox that is aligned with the CVC-OEI Course Design Rubric. You will present your sandbox in a live, online session with your mentor and create a 2-3 minute video showcasing one exemplary course design element.

  • Once you complete one of the learning pathways listed above, you are eligible to register for the Capstone.
  • After you register, you will be paired with a mentor who will support you through the completion of your Capstone project. We expect capstone candidates to complete the project within 60 days of registering.
  • Once you complete your capstone project, you will be awarded a digital badge for the @ONE Certificate in Online Teaching & Design.

To request registration in the Online Teaching & Design Capstone, please @One Contact Us.  

If you have any questions on this process please contact Rick Miranda or April Griffin. 


For flex credit, please send proof of completion to Chad Greene in the Center for Teaching Excellence (CTX). You may receive up to 25 hours of flex credit.
