Most of our courses contain video presentations of accomplished educators sharing their expertise to impact your classroom! These presentations can be viewed anywhere you have an internet connection on your computer, tablet, or smart phone! All materials are submitted to us for grading electronically and are Pass/Fail.
The amount of coursework associated with the presentations varies based on whether you choose to take the class for credit or clock hours. In general, credit classes involve notes, a few short papers, and assignments. The clock hour courses involve the same content but generally only notes on the presentation are required for course completion.
All courses are "Post-Baccalaureate" courses through Eastern Washington University, an accredited institution. Teachers in multiple states have been using these courses for salary advancement/re-certification for over 10 years. Always check with your district/state to be sure before beginning any professional development course.
EWU is on a Quarter Credit system so to convert to Semester Credits, you may find the following helpful:
To convert quarter credits to semester credits: Divide quarter credits by 1.5.
3 quarter credits ÷ 1.5 = 2 semester credits
5 quarter credits ÷ 1.5 = 3.3 semester credits
To convert semester credits to quarter credits: Multiply semester credits by 1.5.
2 semester credits x 1.5 = 3 quarter credits
3 semester credits x 1.5 = 4.5 quarter credits
