Boise State Educational Technology

I am currently finishing my Masters of Educational Technology degree online through Boise State University. The program is awesome. Most classes are asynchronous while I'm currently in an Educational Games and Simulations class that meets every Thursday night in Second Life. It is a blast. The curriculum is great and applicable in my current Technology Education position.

I am currently finishing my Masters of Educational Technology degree online through Boise State University. Most of the classes are asynchronous, however I'm in a class on Educational Games and Simulations which meets synchronously each Thursday night in Second Life. It's a blast. The curriculum is great and the professors are very helpful. I highly recommend it. Watch a great video about it here:

Wow. Thanks for all of the great feedback. Sounds like quite a few of you have gone with Walden. Anyone enroll with Wilkes University? I signed up for information. They have two different edtech programs and both look interesting.

I completed my Masters at CTUOnline - Colorado Technical University. This was an accelerated course but very rich with multimedia presentation; a superb helpdesk; software and texts were of good quality. http://www.coloradotech.edu/CTU-Online

Donelle:

I'm currently enrolled in St. Joseph's on-line Master's in Instructional Technology. I'm enjoying it but I would certainly recommend you do your homework. I saw that someone mentioned accrededation and that can be a big deal - it was for me.

Also, there was a really great program on PBS dealing with on-line education - very informative. They have the full show on their website.

I'm enjoying St. Joe's program but what pushed me over the edge of picking it was it's reputation and solid accrededation.

Good luck!

I would recommend the Master of Arts in Learning Technologies, Online from Pepperdine University. It's a rigorous 13-month program 85% online which incorporates collaboration, team-building, projects applied directly to your current employment, and exemplary professors. It's expensive and requires your undivided attention, but so worth it! The best learning experience I've had.
