I found a couple relevant to what we and a link for those of you wanting other degrees...outside of Education.

First here a great program from the University of Minnesota for:
OLPD Ph.D.: Comparative and International Development Education (CIDE) Track
http://www.cehd.umn.edu/olpd/grad-programs/CIDE/LIIE/default.html#Admissions
This one is actually a hybrid which requires some time spent at the campus in the summer. (I hear Minnesota is nice in the summer.)
Here's the program description:
"This interdisciplinary doctorate degree program is offered by the University of Minnesota’s Department of Organizational Leadership, Policy, and Development (OLPD) through its Comparative International Development and Education (CIDE) program area. This cohort-based doctorate program for international educators is oriented toward working professionals and is specifically designed to meet the needs of leaders working in international contexts including those in the United States. It is possible to remain fully employed while studying for this advanced degree.

Students enrolled in the program spend three-four weeks on the University of Minnesota—Twin Cities campus for three summers, (typically from late June through mid-July) and complete courses offered online during the fall and spring semesters. Coursework is scheduled to be completed in three years .With the approval and guidance of a faculty adviser; the program culminates with a 24 credit dissertation on a topic of student individual interest."



Here is the curriculum:

Here is the link to other good online PhD programs.

I am sorry that these are all US schools, but definitely if you know of other schools in other countries that do this, that'd be helpful to contribute.

There are tons of them out there nowadays. Do you know about degreeinfo? They have lots of info there

The problems I've found with a lot of them are
They're not from B&M schools
They're nationally accredited
They meet on campus
They have schronized online classes which conflict with my schedule
They're super expensive

I've been looking for a good one for over a year now.

Just wanted to add a few more for which I have personally contacted the admissions folks/department chairs.

PhD- University of the Cumberlands
Online PhD or Ed.D
Approx $22,000
8 week courses
Finish everything, including dissertation, within 3 years
Master's degree required for application

I was very tempted to begin this program, but the only catch is that the courses are offered synchronously, which means you have to be in front of the computer for an hour every week at a certain time, specifically around 8pm CST Monday. The only problem of course is that this means it is Tuesday morning Korean time here, when many of us are teaching.

Ed.D American College of Education
Ed.D or Ed.S
Approx $22,000
Approx 3 years plus dissertation

I just learned about this program. American College of Education (ACE) is a relatively new university, but it is regionally accredited (the gold standard of education). They offer many master's degrees in education, including ESL, as well as Ed.S and Ed.D programs. The Ed.D program is in Leadership, with about seven concentrations available, including online, adult, and international education. It takes about 3 years to complete plus dissertation. The great thing about this program is that it is offered asynchronously, which means you don't have to be in front of the computer at a certain time.

The University of Leicester has a distance learning PhD in Education I believe.
