Emerging technologies have changed the face of learning, providing a tremendous opportunity to reach audiences at stronger levels. Full Sail University’s online Instructional Design & Technology master’s degree program has been developed to teach instructors, educators and corporate trainers how to combine the digital world’s media resources with modern instructional methods to create meaningful learning experiences.
Studies show that people are more receptive to absorbing information when they’re physically engaged in the discussion or learning activity, and media technology paves the way for this to be translated into a variety of learning environments. With more than 30 years of experience incorporating innovative learning methods into curriculum, Full Sail is uniquely qualified to help instructional designers, educators, and training professionals meet the challenge of connecting with today’s learners.
This unique online degree program is designed to give instructors and corporate trainers the tools to bridge the gap between traditional learning environments and the ever-expanding realm of technology and media, allowing them to create immersive and interactive instructional tools.
In this program, you’ll learn to utilize media creation tools and technology to create podcasts, video presentations, and more, while studying how alternate learning methods like games, music, and educational multimedia can help you to develop an effective learning environment. In addition, you’ll study a variety of learning theories and instructional design models as you develop an understanding of which methods work best in a given learning environment.
And as you’re experiencing the Instructional Design & Technology curriculum through Full Sail University's innovative online learning system, you’ll explore how to create, improve, and fully utilize an online curriculum and delivery system that will inspire your audience and give you a solid instructional design foundation.
Finally, you’ll put all these parts together in a project-based final course that builds upon previous assignments and projects and represents the practitioner-based research you explored.
