Building Online Executive Education Courses That Work: Design Opportunities and Challenges.
Beatty, Brian; Branon, Rovy; Wilson, Jack
How can instructional designers create executive education, seminar style (non-credit) courses that are short (one to two hours) but still provide a meaningful learning experience for managers and executives in an organization? Engaging and motivating learners in short courses without traditional assessment formats or external motivators such as grades or academic credit is difficult to do and presents a challenge for designers who have "grown up" developing academic courses or professional training for traditional programs. This paper presents several design solutions that have been successful in this context. Unique instructional features, specific instructional design challenges, and a program of ongoing research are also described. (Contains 12 references.) (Author/AEF)
