Course: Master of education (knowledge networks and digital innovation).

In today's education environment, schools are keener than ever to find educators who are eager to embrace the digital space and lead it.

"This is not just a degree about technology. It aims to help teachers think globally and in a networked manner, to empower the creative learning needs of their students," says courses director in Charles Sturt University's School of Information Studies, Judy O'Connell.

"Students need to know how to juxtapose quality text, sound, media and social connections appropriately and in real time; and how to filter, then mix and match what they see, hear and exchange [online]," she says.

"This degree can be the springboard to promotion with a current employer, the platform from which to launch a new career, or simply a way to become more effective in a current role."

Duration: Two years part-time (eight subjects in total).

Time: Expect to study 150 hours per subject (interactive learning plus assessment activities).

Where: Fully online.

When: Starts 2014.
