Program description

Inter-university Master's Degree in Educational Technology: E-Learning and Knowledge Management

The use of digital technologies has changed the traditional concept of an educational setting consisting of teachers and students and has opened up new possibilities for providing education online. Education via the Internet is currently developing and increasing more and more rapidly and is complimenting traditional face-to-face systems.

To meet the objectives of this master's degree, students will do the following:

  • Analyse the potential of ICTs as new platforms for learning and knowledge management, focusing on the advances achieved in this field by e-learning.
  • Identify the theories and strategies of the teaching-learning process on which e-learning media are.
  • Acquire criteria for designing multimedia for education
  • Analyse the potential of ICTs as new platforms for learning and multimedia applications.
  • Structure and develop multimedia teaching material according to the target audience.
  • Learn and understand the parameters that define the process of digitisation and reproduction of teaching materials.
  • Acquire skills to manage information and knowledge.
  • Determine the economic feasibility of multimedia projects.
  • Develop a practical application in the field of materials design and/or training environments.
  • Have their first contact with research methodology in educational technology.

The course will be taught in Spanish (90%), English (10%) and Catalan (optional).
