I found an interesting article about getting creadit for PBS TeacherLine courses. Apparently, Boise State University students are eligible to take these classes and receive graduate credits. Does it also work for the EdTech students? For example, they offer the following course for 3 credits:
Online Facilitator Training I: Mastering the Skills of Online Teaching

Thanks for posting this Michaela. It does look like a fabulous opportunity for professional development. Unfortunately, it looks like these are professional development credits and not applicable to the master's degree. The credits might be suitable for re-certification or salary advancement depending on the school district. I hope that helps.
Michaela, I took this course about a year ago. It is an amazing course and worth every penny and all of the time you put into it. I recommed it to everybody who is interested in facilitating online courses because it really teaches you how to write landscape posts. I've tried using their methods in some of my EDTECH classes, but not everybody appreciates the way I do my posts so sometimes I just answer the question and leave it at that.
I think I missed the deadline to get BSU credit for the course, but I'm not too upset because they would be undergraduate credits that I'd have to pay for again. The only cool thing about having it with BSU, though, is that it could automatically be a part of my transcript, I think.
Please feel free to email me off of the public board if you want to know more.
