UBC’s first two online master’s programs were development collaboratively with universities outside of Canada. The Master of Education Technology (MET) program was originally development, in collaboration with Moi University, a secondary education diploma program for teachers in the Dadaab refugee camp schools in Kenya as part of the Borderless Higher education for Refugees (BHER) project based at York University.
