About Us

The M.S. in Instructional Design and Technology was launched in 2002 as one of the first fully online degree programs in the nation. We have over 300 graduates to date representing fifty different professional business/corporate areas. Since the inception of the program, we have strived to incorporate theory and research related to adult learning and cognition melded with current and emerging practices and tools in technology. Graduate students experience best practices in the field reflecting innovative instructional strategies and assessment and evaluation methodologies. They develop skills in project management, LMS, collaboration, written communication, technology enabled media literacy, research and critical thinking/problem solving while learning to use the tools of technology to develop sound curricula. The master's program provides a challenging and rigorous educational environment and students can participate in the benefits of faculty mentoring and professional networking provided by our vibrant active Alumni Chapter Association. We are pleased to now offer a certificate program in Instructional Design and Technology as well.

We are ranked by U.S. News & World Report as a Best Online Program!
