In addition to our live Summer Online Instructional Development, we also offer asynchronous training opportunities for faculty, staff, and grad students. 

From the Archives: COFFEE Training Series

In Monday’s post, we introduced the summer schedule for live training opportunities. We also offer self-paced, asynchronous trainings, and summer is a great time to try them out!

The Clemson Online Furthering Faculty Education and E-Learning, or COFFEE, series is fully self-paced! You can now boost your Canvas knowledge and online teaching skills when it’s most convenient for you. All courses have a dedicated facilitator, so you will always be able to ask questions and get timely assistance. Clemson Online will record participants’ completion of the course after they complete all of the assigned tasks and can issue a completion certificate upon request. All courses are delivered through Canvas.

Check out all the COFFEE courses we offer, including those focused on Accessibility and Video and Visual!
