San Jose State Develops Online Master's Program in Occupational Therapy

San Jose State Develops Online Master's Program in Occupational Therapy

In 1998, San Jose State University's (SJSU) Division of International and Extended Studies along with the Department of Occupational Therapy (OT) received a grant from the California State University Commission on Extended Education to develop the first online master's program in OT in the United States. The grant was to be used to adapt the curriculum of 10 courses into online courses. From the project's inception, instructional design was considered the key component to creating a successful online program. One aspect considered in building the program was that the faculty had never been part of an online teaching experience, and for that matter, had never constructed courseware for the purpose of learning.
