Abstract

This paper reports on the design, implementation, and effects of using a web scenario-based project approach in an undergraduate media management course. The goals of the course were twofold: 1) to provide a knowledge foundation of the economics, management, and programming practices of the telecommunications industry; and 2) to conduct an initial media analysis on a current media program by using knowledge learned in class. A scenario-project was designed to give students opportunities to apply knowledge, to integrate real data on the Internet, and to gain a sense of professionalism. Implementation issues and future directions for this type of scenario-based authentic learning were also discussed.
