Online Professional Development for Teachers
The Commonwealth Learning Online Institute (CLOI) is a not-for-profit organization providing standards-based online professional development for teachers coupled with technology tools, research-based assessments, and best teaching practices.
Self-paced courses range in content and depth based on the length and topic. Participants progress through the self-paced courses at their own rate. The courses are assessed internally without a facilitator. These courses range from 2 to 10 contact hours covering ELA and standards-based concepts.
These courses provide a mastery level of knowledge in the given topic area. The course participants are guided through 7 weeks of learning by a facilitator with specific course completion expectations each week. PDPs and graduate credit are available. Courses are run five times a year:
