The MS degree is one a few in the U.S. that is aligned with the International Society for Technology in Education's (ISTE) National Educational Technology Standards (NETS). You'll learn how technology helps us learn and discover how to create your own online courses, implement learning technologies theory and practice, and more. And you'll do it all from the convenience of your own home. Or the local coffee shop. Or the commuter train. No matter where you are, this degree is designed to help you get where you want to be.
