Frequently Asked Questions.
"Great online education degree. I obtained my master's degree in Educational Technology from Lesley University. I am a fourth grade teacher in Anderson, South Carolina, and I took all of the courses through their online program. The classes ran on a week-by-week schedule which allowed me to work on the assignments through the week on my time frame. The professors were great and very knowledgeable about their subject matter. Many would communicate through email or Skype if I was having any problems. I learned a huge amount of information that I was able to use in my classroom immediately. It definitely made me a better teacher and integrator of technology."
—Kevin Roper, Alumnus, M.Ed. in Educational Technology
This course will help educators to harness the power of digital media for teaching and learning. They will learn to use that power to transform traditional teacher-centered classrooms into student-focused learning environments where students use digital media for the acquisition, analysis, construction, and presentation of knowledge. Hands-on experiences will also help them develop proficiency with the tools and skills needed for authoring and publishing digital media in a variety of formats.
