Instructional Design and Technology
The Master of Arts program in Instructional Design and Technology is a 100% online program designed for the individual who wants to apply cutting-edge instructional technologies and sound design strategies in any learning setting, including public schools, higher education, and corporate and nonprofit institutions. Courses from educational psychology, instructional technology and design and program evaluation provide the foundation for designing, implementing and revising educational design and products.
This program is offered through WVU Extended Learning (http://elearn.wvu.edu). Courses for the Master’s IDT program will be delivered online. The courses follow the WVU semester schedule, running 15 weeks over the fall and spring semesters, and variable length (usually 4-6 weeks) over the summer session.
Jobs for graduates exist in public schools as technology-integration specialists or teachers seeking to earn a master's degree, in institutions developing and managing training programs and in higher education support groups developing online courses. This program also prepares graduates for the IDT doctoral program for those who plan to continue graduate studies and teach in higher education.
