Abstract

This paper examines the implementation of an integrative rapid prototype instructional design model within the framework of higher education. The researchers present the Hanshaw Helm-Stevens Rapid Prototyping (HHSRP) model utilized to develop online courses for two graduate programs, including 33 courses, housed in the School of Business and Management. The evaluation came after a two-year partnership between the Office of Innovative Teaching and Technology and the School of Business and Management focusing on rapid development and deployment of online courses. In a case study format, the researchers describe the adopted model, including the processes and roles contained therein and lessons learned. Based on documentation, interviews and practical observation, issues are explored through assessing and analyzing information gathered from these different sources. This research supports the possibility that there are valuable outcomes in the area of process, team composition, collaboration and communication.
