On-Demand Courses — Frequently Asked Questions
What can I expect when I take a Heinemann On-Demand Course?
Heinemann On-Demand Courses are online and self-paced. We offer full-length courses, mini-courses, and single-session courses. Most full-length courses are between six and eight sessions long and each session takes about an hour to complete.
Throughout an On-Demand Course, participants watch videos of the presenting author teaching in a classroom, they do short readings, and are invited to participate in different activities such as analyzing student work, reflecting on their own classroom practices, and studying teaching techniques. Within the online course there are places where participants are asked to stop and reflect in writing, and they can view responses from other people who have taken the course before them. Think of this like an archive of an online chat room full of fellow professional learners.
Videos and other assets that are contained within each course can be viewed at any time and the course can be repeated up to one year after purchase.
What is the tuition pricing for an On-Demand Course?
We have several course structures and pricing options for our On-Demand courses. Tuition for courses is dependent on course structure and quantity. For pricing options, please visit our On-Demand pricing page.
We can assist you in creating a blended professional learning experience facilitated by a Heinemann team member, consultant, or author (additional fees may apply). For more information, contact us by phone at 800.541.2086 x1100, or by email at .
Can I (or my teachers) get graduate credit? And what about CEUs?
Graduate credit is available for all of our full-length On-Demand Courses. Our university partners have established their own set of requirements, additional assignments, and fees for obtaining graduate credit. We strongly recommend that currently enrolled degree-seeking students at another institution should determine (in advance) if their program will accept credit from our university partners. Please refer to the additional info on the On-Demand Course credit page.
In addition, Heinemann On-Demand Course participants generally are eligible to receive 3 CEUs (the equivalent of 30 clock hours). If you plan to use the course for CEU credit, check with your local authority before enrolling.
Do I need any special technology or equipment to participate?
No. All On-Demand Courses can be accessed on any Internet enabled device, including iPads. We recommend that you use the most recent version of your preferred browser. A more detailed set of technology requirements is available during the participant registration process.
Can I get free access to an On-Demand Course to see if I will like it?
Yes, we are currently offering a free trial of Session 1 of the courses Harnessing the Common Core Standards, Making Math Far More Accessible to Our Students, and Teaching Reading in Small Groups.

How long is my access to an On-Demand Course?
On-Demand Course access on the Digital Campus platform is 1 year from the date of purchase.
Can I use a purchase order?
We accept purchase orders; however, the order must be faxed to 800-354-2004 or called in to 800-541-2086 ext. 1100.
After I purchase an On-Demand Course, what happens next?
You will receive two emails including an order confirmation from the Heinemann online support team, followed by a product activation email from the Digital Campus (Heinemann's On-Demand PD platform). This second email will walk you through creating your Digital Campus account. If you do not receive the emails, please check your SPAM/junk folder and contact the Online PD department if you still do not receive the information. For help with order confirmations, contact us by phone at 800.541.2086 x1100, or by email at .
