This paper chronicles the creation of a distance-delivered Ph.D. in Educational Computing to be offered by the Department of Technology and Cognition at the University of North Texas in Denton, TX. Scores of institutions of higher learning currently offer Masters degrees in many curricular areas, but few offer distance-delivered Doctorate degrees. The purpose of the current paper is to inform and educate other institutions of higher learning as to the concerns and issues involved in initiating such a project. Topics discussed include the need for the program, a review of current online Masters programs, the steps involved in setting up the program, a general comparison of Masters and Doctoral programs, the challenges faced in the creation of a distance-delivered Doctorate, and the use of technology to overcome the challenges.
