The Institute for Interactive Technology offers a 30-hour asynchronous, online Master's degree area of study in Interactive Technology focused on computer-mediated communications as part of the Masters Degree in General Human Environmental Sciences. Students work with professors in adapting course projects to a particular profession. The focus is on how individuals and organizations interact with technology and might be described as "the difference between doing work and going to work" reflecting the computer-mediated nature of the program.
Students are from many positions (i.e. managers, business owners, librarians, technicians, realtors, financial planners, nutritionists, accountants, college faculty, human resources specialists, and public relations personnel). Any position that involves information transmission (sales, training, education, management) should address how this interaction takes place in a computer-mediated communications setting, thus the name of the specialization, Interactive Technology.
