Abstract

This work describes our effort to establish a flexible course delivery system at the Delaware County Campus of the Pennsylvania State University. Although the idea for this project originated from finding a cost effective model/solution to the problem of under-enrolled courses across University College campuses, other benefits were realized and other objectives were added to our initial goal. Our expanded goals include (i) to improve our course delivery system by supporting more learning styles in our courses via e-learning methodology, (ii) to create a teaching environment that is more flexible in scheduling, (iii) to improve student access to academic specialties across the college, and (iv) to retain students at their home campus longer than previously was possible due to unsuitable course scheduling or lack of availability. We also intend to build on our experience from this project to offer additional degree options on each campus. A brief discussion of this approach including design requirements for a hybrid e-learning delivery approach is included.
