Online Learning


This preview highlights the Making Training Virtual module. This brief, inexpensive module provides an expert overview of online learning and gives the necessary tools to take an in-person training online. In addition, it provides valuable expert-curated resources to transform an in-person training into an online learning experience. 


The Online Learning program is a center-wide initiative that leverages the Center on Education and Training for Employment’s expertise in learning design and educational technology.  The center offers expertise in different subject areas such as competency-based education, curriculum design & development, teacher education and online education.

The Center on Education and Training for Employment continues to fuse exceptional, research-based content with award-winning leaders in learning and instructional design to develop online modules. The growing collection of online learning has grown in a time that meeting in the classroom and training rooms is no longer a requirement for successful learning and fulfilled development as a professional.

Topics are selected based on the evolving needs of partners. The needs of career and technical education professionals, corporate training specialists, course designers, training coordinators, curriculum specialists, and educational specialists are top of mind during the design and development phase.


CETE offers an online learning collection comprised of self-paced online learning modules, instructor-moderated/guided instruction and virtual instructor-led training.

Digital badges and non-credit academic certificates are awarded upon completion the online modules. The non-credit academic certificates are designed for professionals who complete a minimum number of equivalent contact hours of online education modules with or without continuing education units (CEUs), in a select topic area.

Self-paced, online learning modules are flexible and designed for the independent learner with a growth mindset. CETE online modules are asynchronous (does not take place in real time) and allow the learner to engage with pre and post self-knowledge checks, videos, and real-world scenario examples. These are designed to bring the content to life in a dynamic, flexible format without the constraints of a scheduled meeting time.

Instructor-moderated/guided means asynchronous instruction in which participation is guided by an instructor; while learners can engage with the materials at different times, a trainer or instructor may select specific start and end times, provide feedback, or deliver new content on a schedule.

Virtual instructor-led training is an online learning experience that simulates the experience of an in-person instructor-led training, despite the instructor and learners being in separate locations and using videoconferencing systems to communicate.

The flexible. four-part Go Digital Training Collection is designed to help working professionals design engaging training that meets your employees where they are—in the office, at home, or anywhere they stay connected.
