Online Course FAQ

What does self-paced mean?

Our 15-hour course is comprised of 6 modules to be completed over the course of 6 weeks. During these 6 weeks, you may work through the content as quickly or slowly as your schedule allows. There are not specific days or times that you must log in to participate, but you will be working through the course with a Landmark faculty member as your instructor, as well as other participants with whom you can process and discuss content and assignments. Some participants utilize the entire 6-week period to complete the course, while others with more free time have completed the course in a much shorter time period.

How are the 15-hour and 3-credit courses different?

Our 15-hour course is a 6 week course during which time you may work through the course content and assignments at your own pace. As long as you have finished the course at the end of of the 6 week time period, you will receive a certificate for 15 PDPs/hours.

The 3-credit course is a bit more structured, with weekly assignments due over the course of the 10 weeks. Although there are not specific times that participants must log in, the pace of the course is much more structured with more independent work than a 15-hour course. Participants who complete this course will receive 3 graduate credits.

Is there an instructor?

All of our courses are actively facilitated by a Landmark instructor who brings his or her teaching experience to the course.

Do I need to be a current educator to take the course?

While the courses were developed specifically for educators, you do not need to be a current teacher with access to students in order to complete the assignments. Although the content is targeted for educators, non-educators have enrolled in our courses to learn more about language-based learning disabilities.

When will I get my login information?

You will receive information regarding how to log into your course via a confirmation email upon completing your registration. Please note that you will not actually be able to log in until the start date of your course.

How do I login and begin the course?

Using the login information found in your registration confirmation email, you may begin to log in on the start date of your course by visiting www.landmarkoutreach.online. Should you need any assistance or a password reset, please contact outreach@landmarkschool.org.

My school is paying for my course with a PO. Can I still register online?

Yes! Please complete the checkout process as normal, selecting “Purchase Order” as your payment type. Please include any information about the Purchase Order (organization name, contact information, purchase order number, etc) at the time of checkout.

Who awards the graduate credit / what institution?

Graduate credits are awarded by Fitchburg State University, who has reviewed and approved our faculty and syllabi. After completion, participants will need to contact the registrar’s office at Fitchburg State University in order to request official transcripts.

How do I access a transcript for my graduate credits?

Landmark Outreach does not have access to your Fitchburg grades. Please reach out to the Fitchburg State University registrar to access your transcript.

I need an extension. What should I do?
