There are a number of distinctive features about this program:
- It is a distance learning program - you will take your classes online and interact with your instructors and classmates via the Internet. For those of us that have day jobs or time constraints this is great news.
- Students that start the program at the same time will graduate with the same class members. Information learned in one semester is built upon in the next series of classes.
- There are specific classes students must take - you don't get to pick and choose subjects.
- The Knowledge Management Masters program is accredited (as far as I could determine) by the Commission for Senior Colleges and Universities for the Western Association of Schools (WASC). The MLS program web page is not up and there is a question about ALA accreditation. When more becomes available I'll post it.
