The Digital Learning Institute (DLI) is a certificate program designed to give faculty the knowledge and skills to develop and manage successful online and hybrid courses. The DLI now has two track options. The first track, DLI Lite, is an abbreviated version of the of the original DLI. The DLI Lite has less requirements; 1 required session, 1 elective session, and does not require a capstone. The original DLI, now called the DLI Full, requires participants to attend 4 required sessions, 6 elective sessions, and complete a capstone. The modalities of these sessions will vary from session-to-session. Some sessions will be completely online, while some will require you to attend an in-class session.
