The aim of this study is to explore and understand the historical role of computer-based technologies in educational technology graduate programs and curricula for the period from 1975 to 2005. Specifically, this study identifies and analyzes educational technology curricula for the purpose of understanding how computers have changed the interactions of the educational technologists with the computer. As the computer has evolved into a more sophisticated technology, there have been changes in the ways in which it is used as material for supporting teaching and learning. These changes are the focus of this study. The ways in which computers have been represented in educational technology curricula may be an indication of the ways in which the computer was integrated as a resource for learning by educational technologists. This study will help to demonstrate the purpose served by the inclusion of the computer into programs and curricula and ways in which new technologies may bring changes to the field of educational technology.
