I have been considering going back to school. I have already been designing courses for schools for years off and on as a freelance business and I feel like I would like to back up my skill set with an actual degree (my MSEd degree is in a totally unrelated area) so that I might be able to teach someday or at least work at a University instead of as a freelance if I wanted to. Anyway, I have two kids in college (actually one about to start next year) and am trying to find a program for myself to go online probably for lower cost. I found an MSEd and PhD programs at NIU for Educational Technology. I was all set to start until I read salaries for people with those degrees. I was on salary.com and payscale.com and was just surprised to see that people with those degrees do not really seem to make that much. Are those reliable sites for salary information or do you have suggestions on better? It was a little disheartening to think about doing all that extra schooling and not even increasing my salary from where it is now as a result. Just curious if anyone knew if those sites are good or if there are more reliable sites to check salary info on. Thanks.
