Welcome to the course management site for PLUcredits.com.  Courses offered on this site are approved by the Georgia Department of Education.

Summer Session is FULL

The next available session will be offered Fall Semester:

September 12 - November 8, 2015

The total cost of a 5 PLU course is $300. There are no required textbooks or other materials to purchase. All resources will be provided or are available free online. Those who demonstrate mastery by completing this 50 hour (5 PLU) course will also satisfy the Georgia Special Requirement to have a course in the Identification and Education of Exceptional Children as described by the Georgia Professional Standards Commission(PSC).

Here is an idea of how this online course works. You will be directed to download specific Georgia resource materials like the Special Education Implementation Manuals available at the Georgie Department of Education website. You will also be referring to the websites of the major organizations for each disability we cover.  

Assignments will appear at the bottom the this Moodle course management page each Saturday morning. Resources for you to read or videos to view will be listed in each week's section, along with activities or assignments to complete. Each week's assignments are due by midnight on Sunday one week later. We cover up-to-date information on special education law and the identification and education of children who have special educational needs. The work is equivalent to that required in a 3-semester hour college course.

There is no partial credit, and there are no refunds after the first week of the course.  Because this is a professional learning course, some assignments will be evaluated "meets standard" or "incomplete"  Others will receive a number grade on the 100 point scale so you will know exactly how you are doing. You will always have the opportunity to resubmit assignments that do not meet standards the first time until one week after the course officially ends.
