Abstract

Five years ago, MTSU implemented an online course delivery program and faculty expectations for implementation and success were high. The initial prospect for the software was exciting; but, utilization of the total delivery package proved to be cumbersome for a few and difficult for others to master. Many instructor's first experiences resulted in total disillusionment and they stopped using any online delivery software for either all or a portion of their course instruction. Good training sessions provided by the university's Instruction Technology Division help and assisted many instructors. Now that the university is changing to a different software vendor are similar experiences of high expectations anticipated A review of the issues leading the university to moving from one delivery package to another delivery package will be addressed. A rationale for moving to another online course delivery package will be addressed and a select few alternative delivery packages will be addressed.
