Toward a partnership model for Web-Based learning


Internet and Higher Education Volume 1, Number 3, ISSN 1096-7516 Publisher: Elsevier Ltd


The Partnership Learning Model was designed for a specific program with great market demand—Management Education and Training in the Advanced Technology Sector. The Model will be distinct through the combination of quality content, use of the most effective technology to support learning, and the development of co-operative partnerships in defining the quality of the program. Superior content, delivery and service are enabled through a partnership between the university and private industry. Both parties have distinct and valuable core competencies. The learning model addresses clients' perceived need for university accreditation, which is facilitated by university infrastructures providing a research focus, course delivery, and support. The learning model maximizes the value of core competencies and credibility in the advanced technology sector—relevant applicable content and the ability to raise funds to develop and deliver superior interactive content. The partnership model of learning combines the strengths of content experts from academia and private industry to ensure that all students, regardless of location will have the best possible learning experience.
