Instructional Design, Learning and Technology, Online Learning Instructional Design

Since distance education is becoming so popular, many who work in this field are involved in producing online classes and other e-learning tools. If you are looking to go into instructional technology, a Bachelor’s degree in Education with an additional major or minor in computer science can qualify you for entry-level work. However, most professionals in this field attain a Master’s of Education (MEd) in Instructional Technology.

The preponderance of computers and the importance of the Internet have created a huge demand for instructional technology professionals. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that jobs in this field will expand by 22% through 2016, which is a much faster than average rate when compared to all occupations. As with most other educational work, having an advanced degree (Master’s or higher) typically translates into better employment opportunities.
