How long do courses last?
Most courses last two weeks, so a typical six-course certificate can be completed in as little as three months.
Who teaches the courses?
Courses are instructed by knowledgeable, friendly subject-matter experts who facilitate online discussions, answer student questions, and help students relate the course concepts to your own organization.
What is the expected time commitment?
Students should expect to spend at least three to five hours per week completing the learning activities, participating in online discussions, and working on course projects. Courses are self-paced, so students are never required to log in at any particular hour or day.
How do I register for a class?
If you are interested in pursuing an eCornell individual course or certificate program you must fill out either the Professional Development Request form (individual course) or Professional Development Reimbursement Form (certification program). After gaining manager approval, forward the signed form to firstname.lastname@example.org for consideration. If your request is approved, you will receive instructions on how to access your approved course(s).
