The Online Experience
After having had the opportunity to interact in the classroom, professors and participants transition to a period of online learning. The online courses are taught via case study, technical notes, group assignments and group forum. The professors guide the flow of the conversation, pose questions, and summarize learning at the end of the week-long session. New content is introduced each week and participants have a couple of days to prepare before the professors start the course.
Online courses give participants the chance to read, reflect and contribute at their leisure, from any location, around the clock: Given the senior profile of the class, there is ample time for sharing experience and perspectives among classmates. Groups will work together via numerous internet tools, such as email, chat, messaging, video conferences, forging strong working relationships between team mates.
