Comments on the MSc Applied eLearning
It’s very important that you find the programme that is right for you in your current context, and to lay a pathway for your future professional development. The short video clips on this page have been created in addition to the text-based testimonials below to give you a more personal view from some of our current and past participants, as well as from some members of the programme team in podcasts.
Participant backgrounds have been from diverse disciplines such as accountancy, architecture, biological sciences, childcare education, chemistry, computing, design, engineering, enterprise, hospitality management, language teaching, law, Montessori teachers, nursing, optometry, physics and social science. Participants from the public sector include those from the health services (both executives and practitioners) and from the private sector, there have been instructional designers, multimedia developers, accountants, solicitors, finance and insurance analysts, educational technologists and IT trainers. An important facet to the programme has been the inclusion of lecturers from the Apprentice Education sector across Ireland, where we have had successful participants drawn from the Institutes of Technology from construction skills, refrigeration, sheet metal work and electrical engineering.
