Launching a Worldwide Online Education Program
Describe the bottom-up approach to the launch of a worldwide online educational program. This program was conceived by others and my role was to be a guinea pig in teaching on the worldwide platform three times before our offerings developed rapidly into a new online graduate degree program. What describe is a situation that arose from introducing an educational innovation in a public university setting during a time of much transition with a metamorphosis of roles and entities. We quickly went from experimentation with a single course (my own) to specializations and an entire online graduate-level program.The design and delivery involved three additional entities at college, university, and worldwide enterprise partner levels, whereas the typical face-to-face course has minimal involvement of other entities in the design and delivery levels. Drawing inferences about what should or should not have happened before my involvement would be extremely inaccurate and misleading. If anything, the situation reflects on individuals doing the impossible. Any involvement have had was purely in participating in a team effort with a large group of talented individuals working tirelessly
