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.

    How do we look at what the course is about, that is, what the curriculum is?

  2. Katie says:

    Do we have to be available at specific times or is it flexible when we work through the online components?

    • Stan Freeda says:

      The courses are asynchronous, so you do not have to be available at any specific time. However, the units (weeks) are synchronous, so you do have to be participating in the unit during the week the unit is running, and move to the next unit on the following week. Our Units run from Wednesday through Tuesday, which puts the weekend in the middle. It is not a bad idea to set aside 4-6 hours each week your participation time. But those hours could be at your own convenience according to your schedule.

  3. Heather Wright says:

    I am interested in taking English classes for 5 – 12 certification. What classes do you offer for this?

  4. Stan Freeda says:

    If you look on the Facilitated course page on the website at http://www.opennh.org, you can see all the courses we offer under Literacy and Language Arts. We do develop new courses from time to time as we find a need or have demand for them. There are currently no new courses in development in those areas.

  5. Stan, I am not seeing the syllabus for LT10 on the website. Is it available yet? Thanks

Please tell us what you think?
