Building a Global Teaching Studio

A session at University of Illinois Web Conference

Friday 7th April, 2017

9:45am to 10:45am (CST)

This year, the College of Business debuted its online MBA degree, the "iMBA." This program is revolutionary in that it partners with Coursera's MOOC platform to for an asynchronous environment that offers courses free to world. Students accepted to the program extend the Coursera content and join a more synchronous and engaged experience with the instructors and fellow students.

Key to this engagement is the connection of program participants through video conferencing. The iMBA program has selected ZOOM for a state of the art video teaching presence. Three studios have recently been built for creating and broadcasting the program's media. Consideration of branding and identity is stressed at all touch points. Working within the constraints of multiple platforms, the College has implemented design elements that accomplish that goal. This presentation will detail the development of the design and infrastructure that delivers this disruptive force in the MBA learning space.
