Who should participate
Any person who is teaching online should participate. The designation is relevant for faculty teaching totally online, and faculty teaching hybrid or blended courses. The COI designation was created for faculty in higher education, but other teachers are eligible for the program as well.
Why you should participate
There are two reasons why you should participate in the COI program:
• Demonstrate your knowledge. You can demonstrate to others in your institution that
your knowledge about online teaching is benchmarked with
a standard of achievement
developed by the leading
thinkers and practitioners in the field.
• Document your expertise. Perhaps the biggest reward is the internal satisfaction of
having achieved this level of knowledge skills.
