Teacher License Recertification Information
Earn Your Teacher Recertification Points Anytime, Anywhere Through Shenandoah University's Distance Education recertification classes.
Partnering with Virtual Education Software, Inc., Shenandoah University provides distance learning graduate courses in a SELF-PACED format via an online download (computer-based instruction for teachers). These courses are to be used towards recertification of teacher licensure. Students may choose from an extensive list of distance education courses to meet the requirements for teacher recertification. These courses are either 2-credit or 3-credit courses.
Please note: VESi courses are designed to be run online from a reliable high-speed internet connection (wireless connections are not recommended). If you do not have access to a reliable high-speed internet connection, then VESI does have a CD-Rom format available. If you require the CD-Rom format, you will need to request the CDs at the time of your registration.

Here's how our VESI courses work:
Register for the course (see below)
The course instructions, syllabi and a link to your VESI course will be emailed to you within a few days after the registration has been received.
You will test on each section of the course; those scores are sent electronically to VESI.
At the end of the course there is a case study paper (or final project) which you will mail to Shenandoah University along with your course mastery certificate. Your final grade is a combination of the exam score and the grade on the case study paper or final project.
