Continuing Education Program (CEP) students may take up to a maximum of 9 credits without matriculating as a degree student. In many cases, these credits may be accepted towards a final graduate or undergraduate degree. Students will earn graduate credit for graduate classes and undergraduate credits for undergraduate classes.

Most courses may be audited for no credit. Audit fees are $500 per class regardless of the number of credits. An enrollment deposit of $250 is applied to the entire payment. The student is not considered enrolled (i.e. a seat will not be reserved) until an application is received.

Accreditation: All Marlboro College Graduate and Professional Studies programs are accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc. (NEASC), which accredits schools and colleges in the six New England states.

  • Credits: 3

A foundation course in the delivery of educationally oriented multimedia via the Web. Students will use a best-of-breed content management system (WordPress) to develop their own highly usable electronic portfolio (e-portfolio). This e-portfolio will be used throughout the course as a sandbox to apply what they learn. Students will practice the basic production of educationally oriented text, photos, video, audio and files for download by publishing them to their e-portfolio. Students will study and discuss the history of the Web, blogs, wikis, RSS, trends, usability, design and the analysis and effective use of Web sites for educational purposes. E-portfolios may be used in subsequent classes to showcase finished projects. After graduation e-portfolios may be used to show examples of work and resumes.

  • Credits: 3

Students will study the theory and history of educational technology and instructional design. This will include topics such as instructional systems design (ISD), cognitive psychology, past and present learning theories, curriculum design, assessment, evaluation, and who the key people and organizations are in the industry. Students will develop their own style of instructional design and their own amalgam of learning theories and use it to design a basic instructional unit of their choosing.

Nonprofit Courses (MDO): ($765 per credit; $500 to audit)

This course assumes a basic level of understanding of fundraising methods and history, and covers the mechanics of various fundraising sources and techniques as well as the psychological and philosophical underpinnings of both fundraising and philanthropy. It assumes that giving, as well as encouraging others to give, will be an ongoing basis for sustaining the nonprofit sector, but will explore the implications of impending political, technological, generational and taxation changes. There will be practical instruction and discussion on foundation, corporate, major donor, direct mail, grassroots, social media, event, and planned gift fundraising, with serious investigation of the human factors that make these successful.

In this class students will build fluency with financial statements and ratios in order to use financial data alongside considerations of mission to make important business or organizational decisions. Students will learn how to identify good metrics to measure the health and sustainability of an enterprise and will develop the ability to design good organizational dashboards. By the end of the class, students will be able to present a good or bad financial scenario to a board of directors and to staff with clarity and confidence.
