About Our Courses

Online Course Model
We use a 7 week discussion based model for our courses. There is a 1 week orientation unit followed by 6 weeks of content. The course content is 100% online and no additional materials are required. Each unit consists of readings and participation in discussions. An authentic course project is developed throughout the 7 weeks of the course which you can use in your classroom or school. You should plan to schedule approximately 4-5 hours each week to commit to the course. Following successful completion of the course, you will earn a Certificate of Completion for 35 contact hours of professional development.

Orientation to Online Learning
There is an optional online course orientation tutorial which is open to anyone who is interested in learning more about our course model. We invite all those who register for an OPEN NH course as well as anyone interested in learning more about our program to visit our OPEN NH Moodle learning management system and explore Being Successful with Online Learning.

Drop/Add Cancellation Policies
You can cancel your registration or drop a course up to 6 days after the course session begins, which would be day 6 of the Orientation Unit. A $10 processing fee will be charged for refunding cancellations and drops. If your course is cancelled due to low enrollments, you will not be charged the processing fee. Instead, you will be offered an opportunity to apply your registration to a different course in the same session or your payment will be refunded in full. We cannot accept cancellations or drops after that date and no refunds will be issued after the drop date. You must contact the OPEN NH Project Coordinator within the drop period in order to officially cancel or drop a course and qualify for refund.



About Our Tutorials

NH e-Learning for Educators is committed to quality online learning of all types. To that end, we offer self-paced, online tutorials for a nominal registration fee. Tutorials with registration fees are monitored, but not faciltiated. Participants will earn a Certificate of Completion upon successfully completing the tutorial. These tutorials are accessible on the OPEN NH Moodle learning management system. The number of hours varies with each tutorial. Registratoin fees are based on the number of professional development hours earned upon successful completion.

The tutorials are self paced in design. Once you are enrolled, you will continual access to the tutorial and all the links and information included. The tutorial is divided into units and there is an assessment for learning after each unit. The five question quiz is designed to assess your understanding of the unit content. You can retake any quiz as many times as you like to improve your score. There is no time limit for completing the tutorial. You can take as much time as you need. When you are finished, you must submit a Tutorial Completion notice, in order to have your work evaluated and your certificate processed.
