The course follows the web hosted basic calendar schedule (not necessarily in linear order) consisting of media, introductions, interviews with industry experts, multiple reference links, research and forum assignments. The course offers an extra credit class collaborative project based on the concepts and lessons discussed during the course.  Almost unanimously, former students have asked for training in skills required for a business environment and/or operation rather than a traditional academic setting, so the classroom process, including schedule, is maintained consistent with a typical business setting. This is not a "traditional academic process" course. It uses a combination of "evidenced based" learning modalities and processes routinely found in the business community to meet the academic standards while making the experience more productive and enjoyable for the students.
