 Welcome!

UT’s online Instructional Technology master’s degree will prepare leaders in the field of Instructional Technology at the graduate level through Distance Education. Coursework will prepare students to design, develop, implement, and evaluate online learning environments. These skills will be desirable in a variety of contexts such as education, corporate, government, and nonprofit organizations.

To be successful in this fully online program, students need access to a computer with a high-speed Internet connection, webcam, USB headset with microphone, backup storage device, and software, as required by the course instructors.
