This volume covers key applications of new technologies in management education and development. The new open model of e-education with new integrations of corporate and academic courses and new levels of customization to fit the learning needs of particular individuals and their organizations. A spectrum of web-based and cd-based approaches to business education is presented. Some of these platforms involve video, audio, PowerPoint, chat, and other software presented in integrated ways. New approaches to e-libraries and e-reserves in support of management education are described. Online and network mediated simulations and games is the topic of a chapter. Another focuses on web-format case studies. An e-portfolio is a compendium communicating the academic accomplishments and professional resumes of a student using videos and other media that paper-form ones cannot. The innovative Place and Space model of Duke University's Fuqua School of Business's Internet-mediated MBA programs is explained. Teaching soft skills using software-supported training is covered. The new possibilities of wireless communication are covered by leading experts. Integrating ERP into business education discusses the use of ERP vendor provided simulations and exercises and issues of reconciling incompatible ERP systems in management education are discussed. A model of technology planning initiatives to improve the delivery of management education is presented. If properly harnessed, the technologies and management education applications described in this volume should provide superior tools for management education and management learning in the 21st Century.
