In order to receive a certificate in DALMOOC, learners must achieve competencies associated with weekly credentials. Each week has between two and five competencies. In order to complete the competencies, please track your learning in ProSolo as this will allow you to list the work that you have done and provide supporting evidence for peer evaluators. There are a total of 25 competencies, each worth 4% of the total needed for certification.

The Quick Version
Our course is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion (or lack thereof). We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any venue, including Hangouts, discussion boards, blogs, Twitter and other online media. Course participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the course at the discretion of the instructors.
The Less Quick Version
Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.
Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.
If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the instructors or other participants may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the course.
If you are being harassed yourself, or notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact an instructor immediately.
Instructors will be happy to help participants assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the course. We value your participation.
We expect participants to follow these rules at all course-related events.
