Intensive course formats have long been used with adult learners as one way of combining intensive learning in a field of study with the time constraints of adult, professional people. The University of Southern Mississippi, as part of its Title III-A five-year grant project, launched a one-week intensive program for faculty, entitled "Putting Your Course Online" Workshop. In return for a week of their time and hard work, twenty faculty members had the opportunity to participate in an intensive hands-on learning environment, resulting in their having the skeleton of an online course - and $500 cash. This brief paper will take watchers through the first two years of this experience; discussion will include follow-up on the participants to determine the behavioral results of the intensive training program.
