Instructional Designers Poll: Market Sector and Advanced Degrees

My original survey on Instructional Designers and Advanced Degrees had some holes in it. For awhile now I've been wondering about Market Sector differences in ID. I want to know if there's a difference in the ratio of working instructional designers with advanced degrees in the corporate and academic sectors.

Please take the latest poll!

I put myself as academic, since the courses I develop are graduate courses. However, I do work for a for-profit company, which means I'm sort of in-between. I figured you're really more interested in what type of courses I design rather than where the money comes from.

I wonder if there would be a difference between for-profit education and traditional academic environments.

Christy: yes; in the for-profits, there's no tenure...
