Graduates of KU's Educational Technology Programs

Design of Educational Technology
The program's Design concentration addresses the rapidly growing demand for expertise in the design and development of eLearning for jobs in industry, government and education. Whereas the integration concentration focuses on the use of existing technologies to advance education and training, the design concentration focuses on creating new educational technologies. Job titles for the Design concentration include: instructional designers, instructional coordinators, instructional systems analysts, courseware developers, distance education specialists, media producers, educational technology consultants, information specialists, online course developers, educational assessment specialists, and webmasters. Graduates of the program's design concentration will obtain jobs in one of the fastest growing job markets in the United States.
Administration of Educational Technology
Educational technology administrators are key to implementing the rapid advances in eLearning in industry, government and education settings. The MSEd program's Administration concentration prepares individuals for positions such as: educational technology coordinator (K-12 schools, community colleges, and universities), director of instructional development, director of online learning, virtual school administrator, director of continuing education and director of corporate training. For example, many districts are seeking to develop virtual schools, and they are having difficulty finding qualified administrators. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts strong growth for educational administrators, particularly those with expertise in "... distance learning, technology and experts in comprehensive data driven assessments of students', teachers' and school's performance."
