The Right Course Format for Your Learning Style

Online Courses

Engaging & Relevant Courses from the Comfort of Your Home

Most courses include a hard copy course text(s) containing a combination of practical strategies, methods and research-based theory for classroom teaching. Learners Edge works to use the most applicable and popular texts in the field. All 3 credit courses include the following sections:

  • Read and Respond: Each course uses a study guide with questions aligned with the readings.
  • Reflection Requirement: Every 3-credit course has a Reflection Requirement that is a minimum of 2 pages long. The Reflection Requirement allows you to deepen your learning on the topic, and to explore related issues.
  • Resource Requirement: An opportunity to customize your learning by finding and summarizing current articles and blog posts that support the content of your course.
  • Application Requirements: Applications are designed to be relevant and useful to teachers in their classrooms, so each course requires that you create something applicable to your teaching situation.

Course Materials

  • The Online Format is infused with multi-media clips to enhance learning, with all materials (including the syllabus) online.


  • For online courses, evaluator feedback is given after each module submission (3 Modules for a 3 credit course).

Hours Only Professional Development

Hours, PDPs, CEUs - Time to Renew Your License or Certificate!

Learners Edge has worked with teachers across the country to help them renew their license or certificate. If you are looking for applicable, online learning that will provide you with a Learners Edge Letter of Completion and hours of professional development, these courses are the perfect fit. We offer nearly two dozen, 10-hour online professional development courses and 30+ non-credit / flex credit courses that are identical to our graduate credit courses, except for price and documentation. Both options allow you to complete from the comfort and coziness of your own home and keep ahead of that recertification deadline.

Professional development is self-paced, asynchronous online work. Topics have been developed with resources, reflection prompts, activities and more. Wondering which option is right for you? Take a look at a comparison of graduate credit courses, non-credit / flex credit courses, and professional development courses to find the course format that is right for you!

Academic transcripts ARE NOT available for professional development courses and we encourage you to check with your state licensing board to ensure Learners Edge Professional Development will meet your needs!
