I just completed my education to become a Certified Distance Education Instructor (CDEI) offered by IDECC which is a program of the Association of Real Estate License Law Officials (ARELLO). The mission of IDECC is to promote and certify quality distance education using comprehensive and rigorous Distance Education Standards.
The program I completed was designed to educate you on theory and good practice for facilitating distance education courses. The course focused on how and why adults learn, their learning styles, what motivates them and how to properly assess the student to ensure mastery of the content. In addition it emphasized principles of good practice for teaching online. The course was applicable to both a professional and academic individual who offered education at a distance (not in the classroom).
This course reinforced for me that distance education has a place in academic and professional education delivery. A majority of the information was applicable to distance or classroom instruction which I found refreshing as the two have the same objective and that is to ensure that the student successfully completes the course objectives and assessments and walks away having sufficient knowledge about the subject content.
At baahs.com we offer courses for pre-license, post-license and continuing education. So when you see my logo for the certification, you will know that the courses we offer have the student foremost in mind.

I am available to answer questions throughout the day or if you want to discuss particular topics within the content that I author. In addition, if you have never taken an online course, I will walk you through how to sign on and how to navigate through the site.
