This study relies on the project of education master degree graduate education comprehensive reform in South China Normal University (SCNU). And use Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) what is a decision analysis method in combination of qualitative and quantitative research to construct an education master`s network course Evaluation Index Model (EIM). According to the matrix calculations of the index weight, we put forward the network course development strategies. Under the guidance of the development strategies we have developed the network course “Modern educational technology” and applied this network course in the network learning process of education masters. Through the contrast test, we found that the network course “Modern Educational Technology” can improve autonomous learning information technology ability, improve the ability to adapt to changes in the development of information technology and media literacy in the process of autonomous learning.
