Instructional Design and Technology

" The IDT program at WIU is fantastic. Since my freshman year, I have grown from knowing next to nothing about the principles of instructional design and applicable technologies to having having a very elaborate and practical knowledge on the subject matter. The professors are highly experienced and provide genuine insight and care in their teaching.  Moreover, I find my the knowledge gained from the program to be useful in both the corporate and educational settings.  I could have not chosen a better program!"  - Carlo Daniels
