Portions of an international master’s program were designed for a blended, online delivery in one pilot course. This approach allowed students in Central and South America to interact with the professor and other students prior to instructor arrival on-site and after instructor departure. Student reactions to this blended approach were positive. Students indicated an increase in skills and knowledge using Web-based materials, and an increase in interaction with their peers and instructor.
