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 definitely recommend American Intercontinental University on-line. Fully accredited, challenging courses and excellent professors.I am over half way through and have experienced learning at a VERY high level. The support sytem is outstanding and the learning platform is quite user friendly.
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.

I did my masters through Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana.

My advisors were AMAZING - so responsive - and I spent a summer in Bozeman taking field classes and presenting my capstone. It was an incredibly rewarding and stimulating experience. Highly recommended.

Lots of love for Walden University. Anyone a current student there now? Which course did you take that left you most inspired?
