“Eureka! A Hybrid Course That’s
Part 3 of a Trilogy of Presentations about the course:
THE COURSE: CAP506 Career Launching and Portfolio Development
School of Marketing and eBusiness
Seneca College - Toronto Ontario Canada
by Dr. Selia Karsten designer, developer and hybrid course facilitator
In the fall of 2004 the course was officially launched with four sections of marketing students in 5th semester of a 6-semester Marketing Administration program. It took about a year of work with two graduates from the marketing program at Seneca to go from the concept to the completion of the course materials.
In the fall of 2005, the course was opened to 3rd semester students so that those in the two-year program would also have a career launching course before graduation. That term was especially challenging with 8 sections (207 students). I had to come up with strategies to enable me to mark 2 individual projects, 13 discussion board postings, and a team project for each student in a timely fashion.
In the winter of 2006 there were two sections (averaging 35 students
per section) and in the fall of 2006 there were seven sections.
the winter of 2007 I've had only one section of 40 students
(34 completed the course). I'll now be handing over the course after five
thrilling semesters of panning for GOLD!

Here is the course home page with all of the resources used this past semester. The course is delivered in a BlackBoard framework online with thirteen weeks of classes in a computer lab for 50 minutes each week.
