"While the MS Ed: Info Tech program is geared towards teachers I found, as an Administrator in Higher Education, it provided me with many useful tools and skills that I can apply to what I do as an administrator. I have used what I have learned in the program to develop online training modules, created websites to assist in the facilitation and management of projects, and design engaging and effective methods of delivering information. I have discovered alternative ways to document and maintain policies and procedures to improve access to information and communication within my department. In addition, the program faculty are wonderful to work with and since I could take most of my classes online it worked perfectly with my busy schedule."

"The Info Tech program at Western Oregon University, provided me the opportunity to explore a variety of technological tools and taught me ways of implementing these in an educational setting. What elevated the effectiveness of this program for me was the connection between the integration of technology and the authors explored, which provided a rich exploration of their thoughts and ideas behind the benefits, challenges, and dynamic interaction of man and technology."

"When I decided to get my Master's after an 11 year hiatus, I knew it had to be a program offered entirely online. Between a full time job and full time family, I had not other option. Not only that, but the education had to also be relevant-more than just a piece of paper. I'm happy to say that the MS ED: Info Tech program offered exactly that. I believe in using the natural talents and abilities that God has given us. For me, one of those abilities lies in technology. But how to use it? Well, WOU helped me to apply it. Before graduating from WOU, I was offered a position at Corban University where I get to combine my natural tech savvy with my newfound knowledge in education to help create high quality online courses. It's my dream job!"
