Blended Online Learning Modules
The New Jersey Department of Education collaborated with educational professionals, school leaders, and other stakeholders to create this suite of online learning resources to support the professional development of educators.
Note: Because these resources were created in 2016, the samples and videos may not reflect the standards adopted in June 2020.
Each set of modules is available as a downloadable zipped file and may include Word documents, PDFs, and Excel files. There are links within the documents to online resources such as YouTube videos, Google Forms, Google docs, etc. Consequently, internet access is required to access some of the content within the modules.
