Our Students Say:

"The advice I received and the skills I learned while completing the E-Learning and Online Teaching courses have been invaluable. I am a nursing instructor and have been able to tap into the wisdom of instructors and fellow students from a wide variety of backgrounds and places to improve my courses.

With the pandemic changes, I find myself applying what I have learned almost daily. Thank you, UW-Stout, for this program!"

~Judith R Corcoran, RN, MSN, CNE, Associate Professor of Nursing, Moraine Valley Community College
