Here is what some of our faculty are saying:
My goal with online version of this class is to make accessible in-class case discussions as closely as possible. The online version for case discussion students has two phases. In the first phase students use the discussion forum to post their thoughts, respond to other views from other students etc. Although satisfactory, the discussion forum perhaps lacks the richness and vivacity of an in-class discussion experience. Hence, they also view the video from an in-class case discussion session after the discussion forum exercise. This combination should hone their critical thinking abilities.

College of Business – Marketing Strategy Course
When developing my on-line accounting course, I was debating between using video versus a “pencast” technology to demonstrate course problems. I assembled a student focus group and they overwhelmingly chose the video. I believe the video significantly enhances the course delivery and I appreciate the invaluable contribution of time and talent of the eLearning team.
