Communicating Education courses are taught by David R. Voss, seasoned journalist, expert spokesman, and longtime education consultant and trainer; and Kristin Magette, APR, communications strategist, Kansas-based district information officer and USA-Kansas Board Member, and author of Embracing Social Media: A Practical Guide to Manage Risk and Embrace Opportunity.

Courses include learning videos that you can play, replay, or skip over whenever you like, project-based activities that you submit for review, and optional online collaboration with the instructor and peers who are also taking the course. 

21st Century Learning:

  • Personal, tailored attention

  • Short video lessons and examples

  • Authentic, engaging activities 

  • Real-life relevance for educators

  • Social peer collaboration 

  • Measurements for mastery

  • Quality training at a fraction of the cost


How It Works

  • Each course is accessible online whenever you are ready to start and contains learning videos, activities, projects and assessments.

  • It takes approximately three hours to complete the course; you may take it at any time at your own pace on your own device.

  • The cost is per person, per course.

  • Each person subscribing will receive via email a unique user name and password upon receipt of payment or Purchase Order.

  • You cannot share the course with anyone because the course “resumes” wherever you left off when you log in and the assessments are unique to each individual.
