The Office of Distance Learning offers a four-week, self-paced online training course for online mentors at FSU. The training provides online mentoring strategies, addresses FSU policies, and provides guidance and best practices for using Canvas tools. A certificate of completion will be issued when mentors successfully pass the quizzes and complete all the assignments for the four lessons outlined below.
Note: ODL Online Mentor Training is supplemental instruction designed to help prepare you for the unique characteristics of the online teaching and learning environment. It is not a substitute for or an alternative to the required teaching preparation and policy training offered by FSU PIE. Academic deans certify the competence of teaching assistants (including online mentors) per University-wide standards. Those standards include a process for certifying persons who are unable to attend the on-campus PIE Teaching Conference.
