Abstract

The purpose of this article is to describe a needs analysis developed to identify duties and responsibilities of distant learning leaders and a Distance Learning Leadership Certificate Program developed to address these competencies. A DACUM process was utilized to identify competencies which 27 "expert workers" believed were essential for performing the job of distant learning leader. A Job Model Online Validation Survey was administered to elicit ratings related to job task importance and the value of training of each task. Additionally, respondents rated specific skill and knowledge competencies. Results revealed those tasks aligned to executing a distant learning strategy were rated as most important. The highest ranked skills and knowledge competencies were related to content including copyright and fair use of guidelines and effective design of materials. Based on these results, an instructional strategy for certification of distant learning leaders was developed.
