About the Course Delivery

OPEN NH courses are delivered in four sessions each year. Each Session runs for seven weeks. The content is broken up into units, which are one week long. Units begin on a Wednesday and end on the following Tuesday. This puts the weekend in the middle of a unit, allowing for greater flexibility. The courses are asynchronous, which allows you to login and participate at a time of your choosing. However, due to the discussion-bnased nature of the units, you do have to participate regularly throughout the 7 weeks of the session. Sessions all have a Wednesday start date.

Winter Session: early February - late March

Spring Session: early April - late May

Summer Session: early July - late August

Fall Session: Early October - late November

About the Course Content

The facilitated courses in the NH eLearning for Educators catalogue are offered in several content areas along with instructional strategies and pedagogical practices. Some courses were developed by the original national partnership, while others were developed and customized to meet specific needs in New Hampshire. Still other courses are developed and maintained by EdTech Leaders Online, a partnership that remains from the early days of the grant funded project. To find out the specific courses in our program, see the Course Content section below. Click on a category of interest to read course titles and descriptions.

General Information

Course Delivery Model
NH e-Learning for Educators uses a discussion based delivery model for our facilitated courses. Each course begins with an orientation week that allows you time to get used to the course delivery system (Moodle), meet your fellow classmates, and refresh your background knowledge of the course content. Following the orientation unit, courses continue with six weeks of heavier content load and expectations, emphasizing theory-to-practice applications. Course work includes online discussions, reflections, readings, and a final course project. Upon successful completion of the course, you will receive a Certificate of Completion for 35 professional development hours that may be applied to their individual professional development plans.

Course Syllabus
Each course has a syllabus with 7 units of content and a final course project. Learn what each OPEN NH course will deliver for content and view the course specific grading rubrics.

Course Assessment
Participation in each course is assessed using a general course assessment rubric.
