Abstract

This report will concentrate on two graduate systems engineering programs that are delivered by multiple configurations of blended approaches to distributed education. The authors have served as program managers for these programs and have gathered lessons learned over a ten-year period of time. The reason this is a unique account is that, within the DoD, many regulations and safeguards are employed for security reasons, presenting challenges to what would otherwise be a model delivery system. To meet these challenges, program managers developed blended strategies that included different configurations of web conferencing, online instruction, embedded faculty, and onsite faculty visits in addition to an already established video tele-education approach. Overall, this has been an innovative and successful approach for us. Our programs are highly sought within the Defense Department, and it has been a challenge to meet the demand.
