With PBS TeacherLine, you can quickly and cost-effectively earn continuing education units, professional development points, and graduate credit.
Convenience & Cost
PBS TeacherLine courses can be completed in the privacy of your home. Courses are inexpensive – the average national PBS TeacherLine course costs $350 for a 30 hour course and $430 for a 45 hour course. No outside materials need to be purchased – so no need to worry about purchasing textbooks or additional learning materials.
Time Commitment and Length of Courses
Class times are not scheduled. Class work can be completed at your leisure. Most PBS TeacherLine courses can be completed within six weeks. Self-paced courses only require a 1.5 or 3-hour time commitment. Unlike facilitated courses, the self-paced courses can be taken any time within a year of signing up.
Thanks to rigorous training, our facilitators – all educators and content specialists – ensure discussions are relevant, assignments are clear and feedback is meaningful.
Versatile Learning Environment
Created with multiple learning styles in mind, PBS TeacherLine features not only reading and writing assignments, but also video and interactive technologies that make learning come alive.
