Course content

MA Technology, Education and Learning is a one-year full-time online programme for people currently using technologies in educational settings, such as teachers, trainers, user support staff, educational software developers, librarians and managerial staff.

The programme also has a two-year, part-time distance learning option.

MA Technology, Education and Learning analyses the relationship between technology and education, and examines how technology can support learning across a range of educational settings.

The programme analyses the theoretical, professional and practical applications of technology, and critically evaluates research and development in technology and education, enabling you to relate the design and evaluation of materials to a range of learning approaches and practices.

As this programme is taught online, you will gain practical experience of e-learning while you study. While many of our students study by distance, all students work together in a virtual learning environment (VLE), so you will meet many different people, even if you are working from home.
