Abstract

Localized applications of institutional learning obtained from four years of successful use of educational information technology in a distance-learning program suggest that the current electronic commerce educational gap may be mitigated by innovative uses of technology in the management information systems curriculum. Presented in this chapter is a case where an educational information technology intensive approach was found to be useful for improving the management information systems education delivery process, when faced with personnel and curriculum space considerations. Just as encountered in the distance learning data, preliminary results indicate enhanced student learning from the interactive and personalized aspects of the information technology, despite the twin constraints of limited management information systems faculty resources and limited Master of Business Administration curriculum flexibility. Face-to-face applications of the interactive and personalized aspects of information technology that were learned in the distance learning experience suggest that technologically based solutions to management information systems education resource pressures may help to effectively meet new requirements for teaching electronic commerce, without sacrificing the traditional management information systems curriculum.
