McBride, Dawn Lorraine; Davis, Lynn Ashley
Journal of Educational Technology, v5 n4 p31-37 Jan-Mar 2009
This article outlines Canada's first web based/residential Master of Counselling program. Since the program is open to students from around the world, the program is designed to be accessible, innovative and flexible. To meet these operational goals, the program is structured around interactive online discussion forums, video web-conferencing, media clips, podcasts, Screen Flow, and Skype. This article describes how the technologies are integrated into the program by including sample e-course assignments, outlining how discussion forums are actively utilized, and highlighting the exit option of an e-portfolio. Recommendations to address online workload issues are addressed.
