CHC's Distance Education Microcourses are short, optional courses that offer training in specific aspects of course design and accessibility. Completion of each microcourse will earn a Badgr "badge" which marks CHC professional development and can be shared as evidence of DE training (with current and potential employers, colleagues, etc.) through the Badgr backpack and on various social media, including LinkedIn.

These microcourses enhance basic distance education training and count toward professional development hours, but do not in themselves qualify as official CHC DE Certification training. For upcoming DE Certification Training dates, please see the CHC Distance Education Training page.

How to Enroll

To enroll, click the link for the microcourse you are interested in, then log in (or already be logged in) to your SBCCD Canvas account. Click the button that asks you to "Enroll in Course" and you're on your way. Number of hours needed to complete any course is approximate.
