The College of Extended Learning is proud to partner with Virtual Education Software (VESi), a leading provider of accredited online courses for educators. These online professional development courses are written by top educators and provide relevant and interactive instruction on a wide variety of subjects.
Online courses work with your schedule, allowing you to participate when it is convenient for you. Each course instructor is available for professional questions by e-mail or a toll-free phone number. The courses are offered for either three- or four-quarter units of continuing education-level credit. Most students can complete three-unit courses in about 30 hours and four-unit courses in about 40 hours. You may register for these courses at any time during a quarter.
