Fees & Financial Aid

Fees

While your education is certainly one of the most valuable things in your life, it doesn't have to be the most expensive because MU is a top-tier university without a top-tier price tag. Created by recognized leaders in the field, the EdTech program was the first online program at MU, opening the door for a range of online programs recently recognized as a "Best Buy" award winner.

The Educational Technology programs require 30 credit hours. The current cost per credit hour for Missouri residents AND all distance students is $336.50 and includes two additional fees per credit hours: an Information Technology fee of $12.60 and a College of Education fee of $38.90. Using these numbers the total cost of your EdTech program will be about $11,301 (plus books and materials).

Not a Missouri resident?

No problem! Whether you are an online student half way around the world or a near-by Missouri resident, the cost is the same. And the added flexibility and access of online learning saves you commuting time and money.

For more information related to off campus student fees, please check out the MU Direct website.

For more information related to on campus student fees, please check out the MU Cashiers Office website.

Financial Assistance

Graduate Assistantships

Impact Statements

eThemes Saves Time, Lowers Cost, and Improves Student Learning

The eMINTS National Center and the School of Information Science & Learning Technologies provide eThemes -- a free, online database of carefully selected, child-safe learning materials, bringing media-rich content to classrooms across the country. eThemes includes thousands of websites grouped into over 2,500 thematic areas ranging from “advertising” to “zoos”. Aligned with the educational standards of Missouri and eight other states, teachers use eThemes materials because they are age appropriate and up-to-date. By saving teachers from the time-intensive task of finding high-quality instructional websites and reducing the need for expensive print materials, conservative estimates are that eThemes lowers the annual cost of K-12 education by millions. The eThemes website receives over 6,000,000 hits annually.

Learning Support Systems Help Students with Learning Disabilities and Emotional/Behavioral Disorders

Through KidTools and StrategyTools, the School of Information Science & Learning Technologies is providing educators with free computer-based performance support tools for children and adolescents with learning disabilities and emotional/behavioral disorders. Project director Gail Fitzgerald and her colleagues designed the tools to enable students to succeed in school and to help them transition to post-school settings. The U.S. Department of Education has provided $2.8 million in funding since 1998 to support the development of this software and to establish its efficacy in public school classrooms. The software is being disseminated to teachers and parents throughout Missouri and the nation.

Digital Support and Resources for the Truman Presidential Library

Launched with a grant from the U.S. Department of Education in 1996, Project Whistlestop provides online support and digital library services for the Truman Presidential Library & Museum. Lead by Tom Kochtanek in the School of Information Science & Learning Technologies, the Project Whistlestop website (www.trumanlibrary.org) receives more than 77 million hits a year, providing immediate access to Truman resources for researchers, students, and other online visitors.

Online Learning Resources Help Improve Boating Safety and Law Enforcement

Software designers in the School of Information Science & Learning Technologies are working to improve boating safety. A team lead by Joi Moore is working with the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA) to evaluate and improve the organization’s online learning resources. NASBLA is a national nonprofit organization that works to develop public policy for recreational boating safety. NASBLA represents the recreational boating authorities of all 50 states and the U.S. territories, affecting the lives of over 83 million American boaters.

Open Source Software Improves eLearning

Jim Laffey and a team of software designers from the School of Information Science & Learning Technologies are working to create open source software to enhance learning and improve the function of on-line resources. The team has created CANS (Context-aware Activity Notification System), an activity monitoring system designed for use in open source information and course management systems such as Sakai. CANS is made available to educators for free so they can better monitor and assist student progress and their students can benefit from the social nature of learning in online settings.

Virtual Environments Help Individuals with Autism

The iSocial project is a partnership between the School of Information Science & Learning Technologies and MU’s Thompson Center for Autism & Neuro Developmental Disorders. Under the direction of Jim Laffey, the iSocial team is creating a 3D Virtual Learning Environment to help develop social competence for individuals with autism. According to the Center for Disease Control, from 1994 to 2005 the number of children and youth ages 6–21 years receiving services for ASD increased from approximately 20,000 to 200,000.

Department of Labor Grant Improves Radiation Safety Training

David Jonassen and Rose Marra from the School of Information Science & Learning Technologies are partnering with Bill Miller from Nuclear Engineering on a $2.3 million project that will help increase the pool of well-trained Radiation Protection Technicians at nuclear power plants. The Radiation Protection Curriculum Project is developing courses and learning resources that will be implemented at 6 community colleges across the country, helping meet the projected need for roughly 90,000 new nuclear employees in the next 10 years, on top of additional needs resulting from new nuclear power plant construction.

Assessment Tools Help Engineering Programs Recruit and Retain Female Students

The School of Information Science & Learning Technologies is working to develop performance tools that assess the effectiveness of engineering and science programs to recruit and retain women. Partnering with Penn State University, Rose Marra is working with the National Girls Collaborative Project, Assessing Women in Engineering (AWE) and the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) to build capacity in reaching female engineering students and to distribute a comprehensive set of assessment tools to help recruitment efforts and to measure retention rates. The need for this work is supported by the continued low enrollment of women in undergraduate engineering programs where percentages remain at approximately 20% in spite of over two decades of efforts to increase enrollments.

IE Lab Helps Improve Websites

Operated by the School of Information Science & Learning Technologies, the Information Experiences Laboratory (IE Lab) helps clients across Missouri improve the usability and impact of their website and other digital resources. IE Lab clients range from small start-up companies to large, multi-national corporations, as well as several libraries and other non-profit organizations in Missouri. After implementing IE Lab recommendations, two clients have won national awards for their improved websites.

IE Lab Global Network

Faculty in the School of Information Science & Learning Technologies are working with colleagues in Taiwan, China, Thailand, and Singapore to create the IE Lab Global Network, a consortium of usability testing facilities. The lab in Taiwan is currently assisting the Missouri Department of Agriculture’s Asia Office to create a website in Chinese for Missouri’s agribusiness presence in the Pacific Rim.

MU Prepares Librarians

A federal grant from the Institute for Museum and Library Services is helping MU faculty meet the growing demand for professional librarians in Missouri. MU has Missouri’s only Library Science program that is accredited by the American Library Association (ALA). With access points in Kansas City, Springfield, Columbia, St. Louis, and Omaha, NE, the Library Science program produces approximately 100 librarians a year, helping meet a growing demand for these information specialists across the State and region.

  • Announcing a new course for the spring 2104 semester: Serious Game Design

    9410 (12) Seminar: Designing Serious Games

    Serious games (SG) refers to the use of gaming in digital worlds (2D and 3D) for purposes in addition to entertainment. Serious games should be fun and engaging but also have a “serious” purpose. Serious games can be applied to a broad spectrum of application areas, e.g. educational, military, government, corporate, healthcare. Serious games offer advantages in these application areas of allowing learners to experience situations that are impossible in the real world for reasons of safety, cost and time. Serious games can also be designed to be playful and fun thus encouraging and sustaining engagement through intrinsic motivation. Video games are becoming ever more prevalent in society and the advancing technologies for networking, mobility, graphic representation, interactivity and game engines as well as the lore of game design offer potential to harness these dynamic forces for serious purposes. In addition, while the work of game design and development is hard, lengthy, requires multiple talents and is often expensive, it is also fun and engaging and a venue where creativity may be profitable!

    Through the use of readings, examples, activities, and discussions students will develop an understanding of SGD and develop design competencies. Through a class project of designing an SG each class member will test and improve their knowledge about SGD and their design competencies for gaming and learning through games.

    Any questions… email Jim Laffey at laffeyj@missouri.edu

    Cases on Educational Technology Planning, Design, and Implementation: A Project Management Perspective provides strategies for addressing the challenges and pitfalls faced when planning, designing, and implementing learning and educational technology projects. The case studies in this publication aim to provide instructors, practitioners in K-12 and higher education, business managers as well as students interested in implementing education technology projects.

  • SISLT DOCTORAL STUDENT WRITING GROUP

    Allen Institute 111 London Hall – Conference Room

    Every Wednesday – beginning September 4th 11:00 AM

    Purpose: The purpose of the writing group is to share examples of graduate student led research and writing in progress, and provide constructive feedback to students. The group will be facilitated by Sean Goggins and other interested faculty. The first week we will review two of Sean's in progress and not fully developed papers in order to obliterate any notion that good writing is not a process of many, many drafts.

    Hopes: It is a reasonable expectation that Ph.D. students will develop at least one paper for submission each semester of study. Not through heroic effort, but through routine work and discussion with others. Nihil Nimus - Google it.

    Questions, please contact:

    Megan Wilkinson — WilkinsonML@missouri.edu

    Title: The Classroom Check-Up: Supporting Elementary Teachers in Classroom Management Using a Web-based Coaching System

    PI: Wendy Reinke

    Co-PIs: Keith Herman, Gail Fitzgerald

    3-year project: 8/1/2013-7/31/2016

    Total award: $1,499,575

    Agency: U.S. Department of Education Institute of Education Sciences

    Abstract: This IES Goal 2 project seeks to develop an online system for school-based personnel who support teachers in effective classroom management practices in elementary schools. Our overall goal is to improve educational and social outcomes for students by supporting teachers in implementing effective classroom management practices. The specific objective of the proposed project is develop and test a portable model of the Classroom Check-Up (CCU; Reinke, Merrell, & Lewis-Palmer, 2008; Reinke, Herman, & Sprick, 2011) for implementation by school personnel in elementary schools. The CCU, which is an established consultation intervention for increasing teacher use and fidelity of evidence-based classroom practices, to date has only been implemented by individuals from outside the school. An important next step toward impacting large numbers of students is to develop a version of the CCU that can be implemented by actual school personnel using web-based training and supports with high fidelity.

  • Essays in Honor of Dave Jonassen just published!

    Learning, Prolem Solving, and Mindtools book cover

    Learning, Problem Solving, and Mindtools is inspired by the substantial body of learning research by David H. Jonassen in the areas of mind tools and problem solving. The focus of the volume is on educational technology, especially with regard to how new technologies have facilitated and supported problem solving and critical thinking. Each chapter focuses on a particular aspect of learning with technology and elaborates the implications for the design and implementation of learning environments and activities aimed at improving the conceptualization of problems, reasoning and higher-order thinking, and solving challenging problems.

    This collection of scholarly essays provides a highly engaging treatment of using tools and technologies to improve problem solving; multiple perspectives on integrating educational technology to support learning in complex and challenging problem solving domains; guidance for the design of instruction to support problem solving; a systemic account of the relationships between mental models, instructional models, and assessment models; and a look into the future of educational technology research and practice.

    This is an edited book – put together by the leaders in our field. Several MU authors and / or grads included as authors (Laffey, Schmidt, Marra) – Dave wrote the last chapter.

  • We have sad news to share about Dr. David Jonassen:

    Dear Friends,

    Our dear David peacefully passed away Sunday morning about 6:30 am central time.

    Not surprisingly, he lived life as fully as possible through his final days. On Sunday a week ago, he made his final trip out of the house to attend mass; on Monday he participated in a dissertation defense (… yes, really) and on Tuesday we enjoyed a conversation and laughter filled evening with dear, dear friends Rebecca McCathren and Bill Jacoby.

    Wednesday morning his final decline began with intense fatigue. He died in the company of myself – his wife of 18 years, his adored daughter Cristen and dear friend Rebecca. I was graced to see him depart this earthly world, and leave behind the burdens of a two-year journey of life lived with Advanced Lung cancer.

    A funeral mass will be held at 12:00 noon on Saturday December 8th at St Thomas More Catholic Newman Center, Columbia MO.

    I know I speak for Dave and Cristen when I tell you how much the support of friends and family has meant to us during this time. Dave really enjoyed hearing the email messages from so many of you (as did I) and the contributions of meals and other help here locally has touched our hearts.

    I will let you know when I’m ready for phone calls and visits; until then please keep Dave and me in your thoughts and prayers.

    The College is establishing a scholarship fund in honor of David. Information about this fund will be made available soon.

    With love, Rose Marra


    In lieu of flowers, please send donations to either:
    - The American Cancer Society (www.cancer.org),
    - Catholic Charities (www.catholicharitiesusa.org),
    - The David H. Jonassen Scholarship Fund (through AECT). The link for donating to the scholarship fund will be posted as soon as it is available.
