ITM 700, the capstone course, provides learners with a chance to integrate the principles of instructional design that they have learned over the course of two years with real life, industry specific instructional design problems. Using guest lecturers from various regional industries, learners analyze a problem and work together to come up with a plausible training solution. Either through interning or through collaborative discussions with those in the field, learners select a training problem of interest to them and complete an instructional design process, whereby they assess the situation, develop a strategic plan, design the type of training, and begin implementation of the training. Additionally, the capstone is taught entirely online so that learners may have flexibility in their schedules to intern at a corporate office. As an online course, the capstone itself is a basis for learners to consider new ideas in online learning and discover for themselves what works and what does not work. The online guest speakers, as well as the readings and discussions, offer learners a chance to explore critical topics in the field that may impact the design of their projects.
