Distance learning has come a long way since Sir Isaac Pitman initiated the first correspondence course in the early 1840ís. Today the number of working adults who are returning to the classroom is growing rapidly as a result of changing market conditions and technological developments. These dynamics call for new and innovative systems for providing instructional content to the business community. To meet these challenges the traditional classroom approach to business instruction is giving away to a more holistic learning paradigm where both the pedagogical and andragogical focus is on knowledge acquisition and management. The one-size fits all educational approach of the past is being replaced by customized learning systems. The purpose of this paper is to introduce the knowledge delivery cube stratagem. This learning system is designed to replace the three pillars of traditional instruction: fixed time, fixed location and fixed learning pace with a more flexible and customized approach for delivering management education.

Keywords: business teaching strategy, distance learning, knowledge management, Internet
