How Does it Work?
Students who have Internet access may attend these online courses, obtaining the education and skills required for employment and national certification in this exciting and lucrative field. Each semester, enrolled students simply register their courses and log into the course site on the date it begins. There they are greeted with an announcement page and links to weekly folders full of robust instruction. Learners participate regularly in discussion board forums and have regular interaction and feedback from their instructors. Group chats are scheduled along with events featuring guest speakers such as professional judicial and freelance reporters, CART providers, and captioners.
The faculty all have experience in the captioning and court reporting profession, as well as specific training in Blackboard, the platform for the online program. All of our faculty have additional higher education degrees. Dr. Jen Krueger, one of our full-time faculty members, has completed her Ph.D. in Instructional Design for Online Learning. Kolleen Barnes, another of our full-time faculty members, has completed her M.Ed in Curriculum and Instruction: Technology. These qualities and experience serve our student body well as the learner's needs and goals are foremost in our structure.
