Slippery Rock University's new M.Ed. in Technology for Online Instruction is focused on building student knowledge and skills in using web-based tools to effectively create an online teaching environment. Online and blended courses have been used for more than a decade in education. As technology is developed to enhance the learning experience for students, schools are continually exploring strategies to implement new learning tools.

Students will be able to apply the tools and skills on research-based strategies and pedagogy. The final course will include a capstone project, where students will develop an online module including lessons, activities, assessments, synchronous and asynchronous instruction and other methods of instruction based on their learning in the program.

Slippery Rock currently offers a certificate in Teaching Online. The M.Ed. in Technology for Online Instruction will be available to students in the certificate program who are interested in adding on the full graduate degree. Courses in the certificate will be applicable to the master's degree.
