This looks pretty cool. Instructional Technology Program: Programs and Curricula - Education Specialist Its 36 credits, 27 core and 9 elective. It can be completed entirely online except for the project defense. It does not require an MEd, just any masters degree. It should be able to be completed in 2-3 years. I like the fact that USF recommends that students choose the project for the 9 credit thesis/project. It even says that a "2-3 page concept paper is recommended." Sounds like it has a lot less PITA factor than a PhD, which is good for many. I'd love to do a project instead of a dissertation.
