A Short Course is a short online learning experience that helps students experience the distance learning environment at their leisure, without the pressure of deadlines or forward motion in the program.
Although student progress is monitored by MTDA central office staff, there are no teacher services available in this format, and the courses are not offered for credit.
We will start this fall with orientation courses. Over time, MTDA plans to roll out additional titles, covering everything from digital citizenship, to introductions to Google Suite for Education and Office 365, to pre-semester preparation for math courses utilizing EdReady Montana.
Upon completion of the course, MTDA staff will “exit” the student from the program, with a “P” designation on their grade report.
