Learning project management skills online
MetadataShow full item record
Project management, once the preserve of the construction industry, is now increasingly sought after by all types of business worldwide. Construction training organisations are thus looking at how they can deliver their services to this much wider market and, not surprisingly, the internet looks set to play a major role. This paper reports on a small pilot study to investigate student perceptions of traditional and online learning as part of the University of Ulster's plans to develop a new distance-education master's course in project management for overseas students. It concludes that online education can be just as effective as traditional teaching but that stimulating course material and high-quality software are critical to success.
