Abstract

Texas STARgate is an online portal offering a variety of professional development opportunities based on the Texas Technology Applications curriculum. Flexibility and multiple paths to short tutorials, browsable Web resources, short course options, and credential awarding coursework allow users to access content in a variety of ways. This professional development system is designed to serve continuing education credits and Technology Applications credentials while also supporting users that are not ready for such formalized professional learning options. Hybrid delivery options provide flexibility of access while reinforcing supportive environments based on professional learning theory. A variety of lessons learned toward developing statewide online professional development is applicable toward other organizations wishing to develop similar initiatives.
