Become an eLearning instructional design expert with the University of Georgia’s online Master’s degree in Learning, Design, & Technology program. The program includes an emphasis on Instructional Design & Development (IDD) that prepares education, military, healthcare, business, and industry professionals to become highly skilled instructional designers.
UGA's distinguished Instructional Design & Development faculty demonstrate the art and science of using emerging technologies and media to develop highly effective instruction and cultivate learning at all academic levels. Students learn to use media creation tools and technology to create eLearning modules, video presentations, and more while studying how design approaches such as games, simulations, and educational multimedia can help develop meaningful learning experiences. In addition, students study a variety of learning theories and instructional design models as they develop an understanding of which approaches and methods best suit learning needs.
Students are admitted in the fall and spring of each academic year. All students holding a bachelor's degree from an institution accredited by the proper regional accrediting association are eligible to apply to the Instructional Design program. The Graduate School will accept test scores as valid for 5 years (specifically, until September 15 following the 5th anniversary of the testing date).
