Abstract

This paper describes the process of establishing an Internet-based on-line graduate degree program for teachers. At Webster University, this program was the first on-line degree to be offered by the institution. The paper reviews Webster University's experiences and outlines a planning process that includes defining the rationale (risks), developing the major components (roadblocks) including courses, approvals, facilities, instructor and student support, and evaluation. The lessons learned (rewards) are summarized and recommendations are given for other institutions that wish to launch on-line degree programs for teachers.
