Abstract

This session and paper is a preliminary report of the findings during the formation stages of a collaborative partnership between higher education and corporate/business to plan and design distance learning. As teaching and training for adult learners becomes increasingly important for corporations and colleges, mutually beneficial learning opportunities exist to develop Internet-based distance learning courses. The types of partnerships formed have the potential for forming learning communities of content experts, teachers, and learners. By using rapid prototyping instructional design methods, collaborative partnerships are able to develop to design distance learning courses that meet diverse training and teaching needs.
