2009 Fourth International Conference on Internet and Web Applications and Services
Designing an Online Part-Time Master of Philosophy with Problem Oriented Engineering
Venice/Mestre, Italy
May 24-May 28
ISBN: 978-0-7695-3613-2
The paper reports on the application of Problem Oriented Engineering (POE) to the design of a highly innovative post-graduate research programme for the Open University, UK, a world leader in supported distance higher education. The new programme, to be launched in October 2009, is a part-time Master of Philosophy (MPhil) to be delivered entirely at a distance, supported by a blend of synchronous, asynchronous and immersive internet and web technologies. POE is a framework for engineering design under development at the Open University. After a brief description of the project and the task at hand, the paper discusses the overall engineering approach taken, key aspects of product design, the mapping between requirements and technology, and the development of one key technological component.
