I am currently finishing up a degree with Capella and have felt challenged and supported by their program. Sign in to vote! Posted 4/18/2010 6:43pm Leah MacVieInstructional Designer | Canisius College It might be beneficial to check with your potential employers before you start to scout out an online program. I know from experience many only deal with a certain type of accreditation. Also, what type of online program are you looking for? An interactive one with webinars, chat, and multimedia or a text-based one? At most online colleges, the classes are pre-designed, and the instructors are only facilitators so they don't have much say in the design or delivery. These are things to think about....

Posted 4/26/2010 10:44am David AndradeHigh School Physics teacher, Educational Technology Specialist I did my online Master's Degree at Walden University (www.waldenu.edu). I thought it was a great program and I learned a lot. It was easy to apply to and they scheduled the classes in a specific order and sent you any materials you needed (books, readings) before each class started. I thought it was just as rigorous and challenging as the in-person Master's in Management I did. http://www.waldenu.edu/Colleges-and-Schools/College-of-Education-and-Lea... Sign in to vote!

Posted 4/26/2010 11:21am Todd Anderson 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. Sign in to vote! Posted 4/26/2010 11:25am Todd Anderson 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: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oG1N6ZP386I Sign in to vote! Posted 4/26/2010 12:35pm Marie LimbackPrincipal at Distance Education High School I highly recommend the University of Maryland University College. There are many different programs and fields of study. I completed my Master of Distance Education degree last year, after taking one course at a time over a 4-year period. The classes are mostly small, lots of reading from original sources, lots of interaction with excellent professors, fully accredited, connection with a brick-and-mortar state university. I am not from MD, so I had to pay out-of-state tuition, but it was such a rigorous program that was applicable to my daily work and yet offered so much theoretical underpinning, that I absolutely felt it was worth it. http://umuc.edu/programs/graduate.shtml Sign in to vote! Posted 5/12/2010 11:16am Donelle O'Briendobrien917 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. Sign in to vote!

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 Sign in to vote! blog How Well Do Schools Communicate?
