This is something I found interesting. I don't know exactly how recent the change is, but I occasionally peak at WGUs website to see what's new and I'm just noticing it now. All of WGU's M.Ed degrees have been changed to MA and MS degrees. https://www.wgu.edu/online-teaching-degrees/education-masters-programs.html Also, gone is the M.Ed in Instructional Design and in its lieu, an MS in Learning Experience Design and Educational Technology. https://www.wgu.edu/online-teaching-degrees/learning-experience-design-educational-technology.html It looks interesting. For what it's worth, 2 quick Google searches show multiple sources saying that the job "Learning Experience Designer" consistently pays more than "Instructional Designer" even though they both seem very similar to me. I wonder what the rationale is for eschewing the "Master of Education" / "M.Ed" nomenclature.
