Some great advice not only for ID certificates, but online certificates in general. I believe I have most of these programs listed in my ID/TC Educational Resources tab above, but if I don't, I'll be adding them shortly.

Seven deadly sins of online course design

Seven deadly sins of online course design | Instructional Design | Scoop.it
Over the years, I’ve seen certain design issues surface again and again. I had hoped to stockpile 95 of these “course design sins,” then nail them to a door in a Martin Luther-esque call for reform. That vision was later revised as I realized (A) 95 is a lot of sins to identify and (B) Martin Luther didn’t have to compete with the latest Buzzfeed list of 15 dogs wearing tiny hats.

In light of those realizations, I’d like to share with you my top seven course design sins, along with practical tips for atonement.
Kat Fitzgerald McCormick's insight:

I don't agree with everything, but there are some good ideas here. A good quick read.
