 Micro-Courses Support Educators from a Distance

The San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) is offering educators more than 60 short courses to help with online or in-person teaching, technology, and other professional growth.

The Canvas Catalog of Innovative Digital Learning Micro-courses features live and previously recorded learning opportunities that provide resources, best practices, technology tools, and guided support for educators and administrators.

Course offerings include primers on a variety of technology tools, such as Zoom, Google Suite, Microsoft Teams, and Canvas. Most courses take about two hours to complete.

"We designed these micro-courses based on current professional learning needs," said Staci Block, coordinator for the Professional Learning and Technology Research team at SDCOE. "We are excited to share our best resources and provide engaging, reflective, and meaningful innovative professional learning."

The short courses offer flexibility for fitting into educators' schedules. There are also office hours available to support those enrolled in the courses.

Most of the courses are $25, and several are free. Annual subscriptions are also available to access more than 30 courses. Learn more about the offerings by watching this video or contacting
