MIS On-Line.
Thomson, Nancy S.; Echeverria, Donna Rose; Mills, Bob
This paper describes the resources, processes and outcomes involved in the development of an introductory Management Information Systems (MIS) course designed to utilize as many of the technologies as possible to redefine the teaching/learning paradigm. The MIS-Online project at Northwest Missouri State University encompasses the available campus technology, access to the World Wide Web via Netscape, and local VAX services providing e-mail, and personal accounts; the textbook chosen also provides a CD containing the complete text plus a summary version with additional items such as video and audio supplements and quizzes and practice exercises. Students receive information and some class instruction via e-mail and are required to communciate with the instructor via e-mail. They are also required to use the MIS Web site which is laid out similar to the book. The remainder of the paper discusses the project development, maintenance, student acceptance of learner-controlled instruction; changes in the notion of traditional learning; costs; benefits; and outcomes and lessons learned.
