Developing an Internet Section of a Management Course: Transporting Learning Premises across Media.
Bigelow, John D.
This paper proposes a premise-based approach to translating courses from a classroom environment to an Internet environment, in which learning premises underlying classroom courses are extracted, then used as the basis for creating an Internet course. This approach is applied in developing an Internet section of an introductory management course. The following six premises are identified and organized into a learning model: learning as goal-based; learning as resource-based; conceptual thinking; use of feedback; active learning; and learning motivation. The resulting learning activity model consists of course goals, course structure, learning resources, learning activities, assessable outcomes, and feedback. Implementation of each element in the Internet course is described. Illustrations of supporting e-mail, Internet, and Toolbook resources are provided, and student reactions to the course are reviewed. (DLS)
