Longwood Online Technology Institute


The Longwood Online Technology Institute (LOTI) houses professional development training for faculty and staff who will be working with online students and includes a preparatory program for students who will be participating in online classes. In order to be an online or hybrid instructor for Longwood University, faculty are required to become certified in online instruction. Faculty who have completed the previous iteration of LOTI will be considered certified, but will be encouraged to take elective classes within the institute to continue to develop their online teaching skills.
