Our Online Course Model
We use a 7 week discussion based model for our courses, which begins with a one-week orientation unit followed by 6 weeks of content. The course content is entirely online, and you do not need to purchase additional materials. Each unit consists of readings, web-based reference materials and activities, and participation in online 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 course participation. Following successful completion of the course, you will earn a Certificate of Completion for 35 contact hours of professional development.
OPEN NH Orientation
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 website. If you want to learn about our online course model and orient yourself to the program, visit the freely accessible tutorial, Being Successful with Online Learning, available on the OPEN NH course site.
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.You can add a course until the beginning of the second unit, one week after the course start date. We can register you with the understanding that you will make up the orientation work as determined by the course instructor. We cannot add you into a course after the second week of the session. You must contact the OPEN NH Project Coordinator to add a course after the session start date.
