Have you ever tried herding virtual cats? Well, try herding multiple faculty and dozens of students online in a blended learning MBA program! This Best Practices Session will discuss the many growing pains, challenges, solutions and milestones that our blended learning MBA has seen over the past 5 years. Our unique curriculum is integrated in nature, meaning that on one Blackboard site, there are 50 students and 7-10 faculty collaborating online. As you can imagine it gets very hectic! This paper will discuss how to manage these sites even though all other best practices say less students is more.
