According to the Alfred P. Sloan Consortium, about 3.2 million college students enrolled in an online course in the Fall semester of 2005 (Allen & Seaman, 2006). Despite the increasing demand for online education, little is known about the impact of online teaching on faculty (i.e., their productivity, their effectiveness, their personal fulfillment). Likewise, methods for adapting on-campus MIS courses to an online environment have not been widely shared among the MIS academic community. (A 2005 study by K. R. Jones does present an assessment of students’ achievements in web-based versus. on-campus Telecommunications classes.)
