Direct to Learner (Self-Paced) Enrollment
Teach NDG Online Courses & Labs with content hosted directly by NDG. Access to the NDG Portal, through a user account typically activated for a six-month/one semester period, is provisioned for each student. These accounts are self-paced with no provisions for instructor access to student account information.
A selection of NDG Online Labs and Courses support access through your school's Learning Management System (LMS). Supported LMS options include Canvas, Blackboard and Moodle. Learners’ outcomes and grades will be posted to your LMS. NDG Online uses Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI), a standard protocol developed by the IMS Global Learning Consortium for integrating any LMS with any learning application. LTI is essentially plug-and-play; instructors and administrators integrate access to the NDG Online Lab Service from their LMS using the LMS access key and common cartridge provided by NDG.
NDG Portal Instructor-Led Training (ILT)
If your academic institution does not utilize an LMS or wish to use our LMS-Ready content, we also offer our instructor-led training options from within the NDG Portal itself. Once you are approved as an instructor, you will gain the ability to create classes within the NDG Portal specific to your students. This will allow you to monitor student progress within the labs and students can submit screenshots of their work directly from within the NDG Portal.
Through our relationship with industry partners, NDG Online Courses & Labs are an integral part of the learning experience available through the industry partners’ LMS. Current industry programs supported include Cisco Networking Academy and Palo Alto Networks Cybersecurity Academy. Participation in the industry program is required. Learners’ outcomes and grades are posted to the industry partners’ LMS.
Teach NDG Online Courses & Labs with a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC). This delivery option supports courses available for anyone to enroll.
