Technology will never stop evolving. Neither will its applications to education and training. This graduate program not only covers the most promising tools in virtual learning today, but also prepares students to identify and adopt new trends as long as they continue to emerge. Students learn how to enhance instructional design with immersive environments (Kitely and Second Life), social media, simulations, games, bookmarking, wikis and numerous other tools.
This 36 credit hour program is taught through online instruction. Students and faculty spend the first year collaboratively exploring foundational concepts and skills, culminating in a showcase of current work, plans for four electives and a proposed final project (either a research thesis or capstone project).
You choose 4 elective courses (12 credits) to reflect your interests and to reinforce the individual focus of your degree. You are encouraged to use your electives to build a concentration around your final project topic. Many students choose to incorporate one of the advanced certificates into their master’s degree as their focus area.
The final project can be a research thesis or a capstone project.
