Abstract

This paper addresses how Northern Arizona University (NAU), an institution that serves mostly rural students in Arizona, created and implemented a totally online Master's of Education in Educational Technology degree that is based on the constructivist theory, promotes and fosters interaction among students, between student and instructor, and between student and content. A discussion of the fourth type of interaction, interaction with the technology interface, is also addressed. Finally, the authors talk about how Active Worlds, a three-dimensional, virtual reality environment that allows interaction, is built into the master's program.
