The Graduate Capstone Software Project Management Class: A Review and Critique of Selected Designs and Delivery Modalities
Three Masters level courses in Information Technology (IT) Program/Project Management taught on two sister campuses in both classroom and Distance Education (DE) format to two very different student bodies are explained, compared and evaluated for possible application elsewhere. Course foci are: (1) software engineering project management issues, (2) IT program management issues, and (3) Chief Information Officer (CIO) IT resource management issues. Conclusions are: (1) any of these three courses is appropriate for a suitable program, and with tailoring, (2) all three could be in the same program for complementary completion by graduate students. Consideration of the expected placement options of graduates should be paramount in determining which of the three is/are present, required, or an available elective option. Distance education (DE) tailoring is discussed in general and specifically.
