E-Learning for Educators, funded by the U.S. Department of Education’s Ready to Teach program, seeks to establish successful, sustainable, statewide online professional development programs that address teacher quality and student achievement goals. Through its EdTech Leaders® Online program, EDC supports this initiative by establishing a cadre of online professional development instructors and course developers within each state. EDC is also providing consultation on online professional development planning and implementation and is developing a series of model online professional development workshops to meet high-priority state needs. E-Learning for Educators is a consortium of nine states that involves a partnership between each state’s department of education and a public television station within each state. The states involved in this project include Alabama, Delaware, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and West Virginia, with Alabama Public Television serving as the lead agency coordinating the project.
