A Case Study in Developing a Fully Asynchronous Online Introduction to Business Course: Ten Big Surprises

By:  Christine Mooney, Esq. and Dr. Edward Volchok — Queensborough Community College (CUNY)


This article reports on the experience of two members of the Business Department who developed a successful asynchronous version of the department’s Introduction to Business survey course. The article highlights what we learned and how we overcame the obstacles we faced. We discuss how our course evolved during the last six semesters we taught it. We also discuss how our College community reflected on the experience of developing the courses under this program and how our reflections contributed to major revisions of our College’s eLearning efforts.
