A MBA degree is a highly coveted degree for online marketing practitioners because it backs up our professional practice. However, throughout our MBA education we are hardly exposed to a field that is very relevant to our practice: online education, also known as educational technology.
The field of Educational Technology (ET) explores the potential use and impact of learning technologies in a variety of contexts, and determines good practices of curriculum design and technology integration.
Educational technology programs such as the Master of Educational Technology at the University of British Columbia provide learning opportunities in:
- Teaching/Instruction using Learning Technologies
- Planning and Management of Learning Technologies
- Design and Development of Learning Technologies
