This chapter addresses applied strategies for modularizing e-learning along both an academic university track and a commercial one. Academic qualifications and professional certifications have been seen as complementary in some ways, antithetical in others. Another way to visualize both is as one-in-the-same in terms of learning contents, albeit with versioning for the various differences. The chunking of a curriculum for both a formalist college setting and for a business one involves creative applications of the module format, particularly given the disparate needs and learning outcomes of the two (often) different learner audiences. This case examines the differences between the learning needs of both demographics. This case then sets the dual-design scene from an instructional designer point-of-view.
