Certificate in Online and Distance Education

Students in graduation hall

A distance-learning Certificate course offering you the opportunity to study theory and practice of online, open and distance education supported by our online tutors, working with materials written and developed by IET's experienced academics.

Our Certificate in Online and Distance Education was originally part of IET’s pioneering Masters in Online and Distance Education (MAODE), whose alumni have been responsible for implementing online and distance learning across sectors, settings and nations since the launch of the MAODE in 1997.

The new Certificate in Online and Distance Education stands alone, offering students a unique opportunity to study the theory and practice of online and distance education, and technology-enhanced learning, through materials created by experts within IET who are constantly reinventing digital learning through the innovative use of new media and technologies.

The Certificate in Online and Distance Education can be gained by successfully completing our 60-credit, postgraduate H880 Technology-enhanced learning: Foundations and futures, which was the first credit-bearing OU module to be delivered on the FutureLearn platform.
