ITMA Program

ITMA is a 30 credit-hour Master's program. The typical ITMA student, employed full-time, completes three credit-hours each academic semester and six credit-hours each summer, completing the program in three years. All the courses are offered every semester. This flexibility allows you to determine the pace at which you complete your degree. See the Plan of Study for your schedule of courses. Course details are listed below.

Assessment of student work is conducted on two levels:

  • At the instructional module level (through course-related activities)
  • At the program level (through a summative review of the student's electronic portfolio.)

In addition to using the portfolio as an assessment device, the portfolio provides students with the opportunity to share examples of the following:

  • Creation of personal and professional educational web sites.
  • Innovative examples of how various electronic media are used to support meaningful learning.
  • Personal educational research.
  • Professional electronic presentations.
  • Educational software evaluations.
  • Production of instructional multimedia computer programs.
