Learning, teaching and training are profoundly affected by the challenges of the digital age. The MSc in Digital Education (formerly the MSc in E-learning) gives professionals in higher and further education and training and development the practical skills and critical insight they need in this fast-moving and richly diverse field.
This Masters programme is delivered fully online, and may be taken full-time over one year or part-time. Although it is a distance-learning course, you won’t be alone: you will have the opportunity to work closely with your fellow students and tutors in a properly supported, collaborative and vibrant online learning environment, studying at the times and in the places which suit you best.
The MSc in Digital Education at the University of Edinburgh is distinctive for the innovative and experimental nature of the programme design, its breadth of scope, the high levels of support provided to students and its basis in the research activity of the team.
This is a popular programme with high demand for places. The next deadline for applications is 30 September 2013, for entry in January 2014.
