Does anyone know of any masters degrees in educational technology (instructional technology or related field) that can be earned online from reputable schools?

I know of Texas Tech and Pepperdine University. Do you know of any others?

Thank you everyone for your suggestions. I'm researching them all now.
Have you checked out SDSU - San Diego State University?? I see this post is from 2007. Maybe you've already graduated by now!
I am currently working on my Masters in Education with a focus on Intstructional Technology at Western Governors University out of Salt Lake City. It is entirely online and is an awesome program for someone needing flexible hours (such as a teacher with 4 children and a wife also going back to college fulltime :)
The website is If you are interested and need more information, let me know and we can communicate further about it. I can also get you set up through a referral that will waive your $65 application fee.

Fort Hays State University in Hays, Kansas has a great virtual school. They have an online master's program in instructional technology. I am a Fort Hays graduate and highly recommend the school. Here is the website
I'll be attending The State University of New York at Albany (SUNY Albany) through their Curriculum Development and Instructional Technology program. Tuition is good (especially instate) and is a good school of education. I have yet to take an online course through them though, I'll be starting this spring.
Hi Matthew!

I agree 100% with Mrs. Foley!

Look into the CTER Curriculum, Technology and Education Reform Program online master's program through the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I believe it require 8 online courses to earn your Ed.M

As for the quality of the program, I can tell you first-hand that this is a high quality program. I completed a MS through UI the UIUC LEEP Program , which is the distance learning option offered by the UIUC Grad School of Library and Information Science. LEEP is a cousin to the CTER program that has drawn students from every state in the U.S. and from around the world. Tools, such as Moodle, that you will use as a distance learner in the CTER program are all supported by a a first-rate tech support staff. There were many late nights spent writing papers, working on group projects, etc. but it was such a fantastic online program that it made every minute very worthwhile. I cannot say enough good things about CTER and LEEP.

If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail and I'd also be happy to help.

I am an instructor in the Educational Technology Program at Pittsburg State University in Pittsburg, Kansas. We are a totally online Master's Program that focuses on Educational Technology as School or Business Technology Facilitation and School Library Media Licensure. We are a NCA, NCATE and KSDE accredited university.

Here's a link to our website (we're working to make some much needed changes here):

Please feel free to email me with any other questions!
I'm looking at Walden University.. fully online. I have meet a lot of people in Second Life from there.
Hello Greg,

I am looking at Walden U for an MS in Instructional Design and Technology - did you attend?, graduate?, what is your impression of Walden now that a few years have passed?
I got my MS Ed. in Integrating Technology from Walden and loved it. Great professors, great materials, great discussions, easy to apply, easy to work with, and a great online system. I recommend it all the time.

Hi Greg,

I am 3/4 of the way through my Master's in Integrated Technology at Walden.I absolutely love it. It is a challenging program but is excellent. I highly recommend it.

Check out SDSU.
Columbia, Drexel, and Penn State also have on-line programs. I think just about any "reputable" school has a good on-line program. Your best bet is to visit the various sites and check out their interface. If their on-line presence is clean, navigable, and appealing, chances are you'll have a good on-line experience. I'm currently taking courses with San Diego State and am satisfied with their curriculum and program so far.
