I find learning from lectures, then reading to reinforce materials learnt in class more useful than other methods (i.e. just read the book). Recorded video (i.e like Berkeley or MIT opencourseware) will work if live online video lectures are not available. I noticed Indiana U. (Kelly) has some courses with live interaction/audio-visual, however was wondering if other AACSB MBAs offer that option too. With cisco becoming a player in HD video conferencing, I am hopeful that the internet courses will be much more interactive than it is now. I understand why a school may not want to use skype, but there are other simple conferencing tools available (eg gotomeeting) that can help with live instructions. I inquired with UMass Amherst, but did not receive a reply yet. Does anyone have feedback for UMass Amherst online MBA program? Thanks very much in advance.
