Congratulations

Congratulations, you are almost there! By this point you have thought about how flipping the classroom will create a paradigm shift in your teaching practice; you've learning about backward design and how to plan a flipped lesson; you've learned about the importance of quality mapped learning objectives; you've learned about tying your assessment to your objectives and were given different ideas for in-class assessments; and now you have learned how to use technology to create lecture media and how to put it into your Sophia.org tutorial. Now all you have to do is take the final quiz and deliver your lesson to your class. Please take some time after your lesson to reflect on how it went and what adjustments you think you need to make to your lesson, good or bad. Also, let Sophia.org know how your lesson went, they'd love to hear about your success and how this certificate program helped changed your approach toward teaching. Take care and good luck with your lesson delivery!

    Another screencasting software is called Camtasia... free 1-month trial, and then you pay about $60/year I think
