The Capstone Project demonstrates a student's mastery of advanced concepts and their application in the real world. The Capstone requires each student to produce an original work that outlines a curriculum for delivery in an online environment. Within the Capstone, you detail the steps and the project plan, budget the project, and storyboard the curriculum. You are required to show how your decisions are based in the theory and practices covered in the classes of the program through a defense, either in person or through our Voice Over IP communications tool. The defense takes place in front of three faculty members, including the student's advisor, and ensures that you not only understand but also can apply the concepts learned in the program. The Master of Science in Instructional Design challenges you to examine all the elements that come into play in interactive online learning. Our integrated curriculum takes into account the psychology of the learner and the goals of the organization. Robust courses teach you how to define and set up measures to identify the educational goals of the organization, the learner, and the culture, as well as the potential risks.
