Teaching with Simulations: Intopia

Associate Professor Jay Dial believes that you learn best by doing.  For the past 13 years, he has immersed the students in his MBA course, Applied Competitive Strategy, in a life changing simulation called Intopia.  The course meets once a week and acts as a capstone course for the students as they bring together all the prior knowledge they have gained in their MBA experience.  The students break up into teams and use the simulation that deals with the simulated production, marketing, and sales of computer chips to compete with each for the top spot.

To learn more about the simulation and it used in the class, watch the video below:

Fisher College of Business: Leader in Online Learning

Launched in 2003, Fisher College of Business’ BSBA Regional Distance Learning program offers a distance business degree for students on the Lima, Marion, Mansfield and Newark campuses. Its primary strength is that it allows students to remain in their community while obtaining a degree from Fisher College of Business – just as if they were on the Columbus campus. In addition, students who wanted to pursue a Business Minor can also accomplish this while remaining on a regional campus. The Business Management degree offers a seamless transfer to Columbus campus if a student wants to pursue a Business Specialization.

The Business Management degree is delivered in a blended classroom format using pre-recorded online lectures and live weekly sessions via video conference.  The live sessions allow the instructor to deliver class lectures to the regional sites just as if the students were on main campus.

Using Online Video in Your Course


The use of the videos in teaching has been around since the invention of the film projector.  With the advent on the internet and online videos from sources such as YouTube, iTunes, and other online outlets, the amount of videos for use has exploded.

Obviously, the question is how and why should you use video in your course?

Video has quickly become one of the primary sources by which students interact and learn about their world.  YouTube is the second most searched site on the internet.  College students watch online videos at three times the rate of adults.

Another reason to use online video is that it supports the flipped classroom approach to teaching, allowing students to watch videos when it most convenient to them and freeing up valuable classroom time for in-depth engagement with course concepts and materials.

The use of online videos should be closely aligned with course objectives and learning outcomes.  Research on learning and student’s attention spans informs us that using videos of a short duration is much more effective than longer lecture based recordings.

Links to videos can be distributed through your learning management system (Carmen), via email, and through other methods.

To learn more about how online videos can be used in your course, check out the links below:

CarmenConnect in Action

Using CarmenConnect gives faculty the ability to bring in experts from around the globe.  During Autumn semester, professor Bill Rives used CarmenConnect to bring Patrick Ritchie, a nationally renowned expert in personal credit management, into his course for three courses sessions.


Professor Rives said, “The students loved having access to a speaker with these experts of this caliber.”

Mr. Ritchie presented for the class sessions that week speaking on credit management along with providing his own personal insight and tips. He also took live questions.

Professor Rives would definitely use the technology again and sees it as a way to bridge the student experience from the tangible classroom to the virtual one.  “It was very good because it introduced students to one of the delivery platforms for distance learning.  They could envision having better control of their educational experience if this extended to other courses.”


Online scheduling system for undergraduates

Information Technology Services and Undergraduate Programs and Advising at The Ohio State University Fisher College of Business have partnered to create an online tool to increase efficiencies and make it more convenient for students to schedule appointments with their advisors.
