Introduction

The Learning Technologies and Media Systems (LTMS) program explores the intersection of learning and technology and provides our students with hands-on experiences that show how technology is changing learning. Students study the art and science of instructional design and develop practical skills to analyze performance, create new solutions and manage the technology of instruction. Our students are employed in industry and in education, and our program strives to develop new knowledge in both areas. You can explore the many facets of the program from this central location.

Learning technologies have expanded beyond the use of a learning management system and web-based learning to encompass a range of technologies and opportunities.
