Master of Arts in Educational Technology

Program Details

This program prepares students to take on a leadership role in educational technology. The program is full of practical knowledge. Students will learn about the latest technology hands-on and be able to use it in their classroom the next day. Because the program is completely online, you will be learning to use these tools from both the teacher and the student perspective. Courses cover such topics as: Blackboard, social networking, Web casting, online discussion boards, blogs, chat rooms, podcasts, video, multimedia, and educational gaming as a classroom tool. For certified teachers in Michigan, the program is structured to prepare you for the NP endorsement on your Michigan teaching certification. For those without teaching certification, the program can add to your credentials and make you the “go to” person for educational technology at your place of business.
