Adapting Corporate Portal Technology for Management E-Learning.
Hamlin, Michael D.; Griffy-Brown, Charla
As the largest provider of MBA talent in the Western United States, the Graziadio School of Business and Management (Malibu, California) had a need to create a technology infrastructure to support students and staff distributed in seven educational centers throughout California. This paper describes the process by which the School came to recognize the potential for portal technology to foster communication, improve the quality of service, and enhance the learning and administrative environment. It also describes how the authors adapted and deployed real-world corporate portal technology to enhance executive and management education through e-learning. The School's process for adapting portal technology for e-learning and knowledge management to create a collaborative learning and working environment has implications and should be of interest to those in higher education and corporate/management training.
