This study proposed that there needed to be an online platform for the graduate level studies in Computer Education and Instructional Technologies. The proposed platform was named BOTE-UYUM, or CEIT National MA Initiative Research (CEIT-NMAIR). The platform was suggested to share the expertise of a mega-university, Anadolu University in this case, in the field of Computer Education and Instructional Technologies (CEIT) to offer graduate courses online along with face to face assistance on a regular basis. Generating the platform to empower and diffuse an MA program in CEIT was found significant for the future ICT integration endeavors of the country. Researchers intended to create an on-line learning system, which should be feasible to deliver MA courses. Within the scope of the proposal, a synergy at masters' degree level at CEIT departments in Turkey and Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus would be created. Before creating the online learning system, it was planned to refer to the opinions of the shareholders, that is, principal participants of the proposed program including academicians, teachers and prospective teachers to form a national point of view. The project should proceed with the creation and evaluation of the online learning system.
