"​I would recommend this certification to all experience levels!

When I was researching programs and certifications in e-learning design, I found the OSU PACE program was a certification I could take while working. Once I began the courses I realized what a great deal the certification is! This program is very applicable and hands on. Theory was provided but then the expectation was to apply it.  The format and community was fabulous and a collaborative spirit was fostered by the instructors.  I learned as much from my peers as the instructors.

I took the certification to pursue a career change and most of the information was entirely new to me.  It was presented very clearly and I felt I received not only the foundations of e-learning design but also applicable skills I could utilize immediately. This certification program has been the best use of my time and money and I have successfully switched careers to a Staff Development Coordinator with the majority of my responsibilities in online curriculum development and design."
