George Washington University Reviews:

Unique leadership program

Educational Technology Leadership - August 15, 2006

The ETL program is unique in that it will challenge you in the management of technology programs, as well as in the execution. This is important because in many organizations, there is a leadership void in how to handle technology. The program does not attempt to teach specific software programs, and you may view that as a minus- but in reality you can learn those skills somewhere else, while the theory that GW teaches is in the end more important.

I have found this program to be very innovative and enjoyable. I am in an education field, but have found that I have been able to apply almost all of my projects/papers to some aspect of my work. The courses are excellent, and the variety of courses enables the student to learn about the broad aspects of education, technology and leadership. The ETL program is a great value. The instructors and section leaders are very knowledgeable and always available to students.

This program is very flexible and many students take several classes while working full-time. However, the expectations and level of participation expected are greater than any face-to-face program. The teachers and other students are so supportive and always accessible. Although it seemed that many of the students worked in the fields of higher education or business training, as an elementary teacher I found all of the material very relevant. I was able to tailor both the collaborative projects and research to my professional needs. I even took a course to create a digital portfolio, which helped me secure two job offers recently.

This is an excellent program if you are looking to pursue a Masters in Education Technology. I am currently in my second year of the program and would highly recommend it. The two things that have impressed me the most about the program are the in depth class discussions (they last throughout the week so you almost get more out of them than an in-person class which would last roughly an hour) and the flexibility of the program (you can easily set the pace of your coursework to go along with any other committments you may have such as work, etc).

Top Notch!

I found the Educational Technology Leadership (ETL) program to be top notch. I researched many programs before selecting this one and I have never regretted the decision to go with GWU. The format and structure of the courses is very engaging and the fellow students are not only stellar, but also generous with their knowledge and experience. The faculty and administration is approachable and reaches out to students, making you feel a part of a community. Overall, an excellent choice.

The program, located at the George Washington University, is a great value for the education you get. Overall the program is excellent. The materials all support the topic at hand. Each semester new courses are added as electives so that students can learn about emerging technologies. The faculty are actively supportive of students and are available via e-mail and telephone. The reason for the 9 is because there is always one faculty member who is non-existent. Like any online component to a physical university, support services could use some improvement for distance students. For example, being able to order transcripts online. These things are improving. The program sticks with the tried and true uses of technology - very little video, mostly lectures and forum discussions. Students wanting to learn specific software will need to do so on their own or enroll at a online program or local college.
