This paper will discuss the many uses of technology and varied media to enhance online courses in graduate school counselor preparation programs. The controversy surrounding completely online courses for practicum, internship, and other required counseling courses that involve skills instruction and ongoing supervision will be discussed. Recommendations for successful delivery of such courses in the online modality will be presented, including integration of differentiated instructional tools that accommodate various learning styles, ongoing communication with faculty and clinical supervisors, use of live audio and video media such as Skype, and triangulated forms of student evaluation. Practicum and internship courses are of particular importance for counselors-in-training because they introduce students to the real-life concerns and responsibilities of their counselor colleagues in the field and to those of their clients across grades K-12.
