Major features of the program include course preparation in educational psychology and research methods. Three areas of competencies are featured: interconnectivity, instructional design and software and multimedia design and deployment.

Instructional design and technology knowledge and skills are developed within courses, practicums and a design studio sequence. Your research interests are discussed upon enrollment. Be prepared to identify these in your application and throughout the program.

The courses in this program are typically taught using a blended approach or a mix of both face-to-face classes and online approaches. Online real-time instruction (synchronous) and online archived (asynchronous) instruction will vary from course to course, depending on the instructor, course content and the range of students. 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. Deliverables and/or discussion in each course will likely occur on a weekly basis.
