To those involved in teaching and training, the 80/20 rule is probably one of the most universal phenomenon, e.g., 80% of questions come from 20% of students and 80% of time spent is on 20% of subjects. This article describes our experience in designing and beginning to create a prototype web-based teaching and training (WBTT) program at the Franchise University (FranchiseU; The URL is http://www.bus.lsu.edu/franchise.). Our objectives include demonstrating how the concept of the 80/20 rule can be used to create a WBTT program satisfying the major requirements of "education brokerages" on the Internet. To illustrate how the program operates, we describe its organizational model.
