BizSmart is a course in which the participants learn about entrepreneurship as they go through the 10 business modules. Participants first will meet with a local coach to start the class in a face-to-face meeting, where all class materials will be handed out. If that is not possible, the coach will guide them through the startup via the internet and the telephone in a form of distance learning so that all potential participants with computer access can become involved in the course no matter where they are located. At that point class materials will be mailed to their home.
As the participants proceed through the material in the 10 modules, at the rate of about one module per week, they will be engaged in reading assignments, learning activities, discussions, and writing assignments to build the business plan or strategic plan. These modules are supported by the facilitator/instructor who communicates with the participants via Blackboard Vista and Wimba video. Both of these tools will allow the facilitator to instruct you on the material as well as answer questions. Additionally, the facilitator may use other means such as the telephone, email or fax to be sure you understand the material.
Progress through the modules is supported by the local coach. The coach will be able to follow your progress in Blackboard. Furthermore, the online coordinator will follow the progress to be sure the participant does not get bogged down.
During the course there will be guest speakers who will expand on the material in the modules. Also, there will be approximately 35 videos in the class material that can be viewed to gain further depth on the subjects. There also 150 web links that can be viewed by the participants as well as downloadable resources.
This BizSmart course will be a true learning experience for each participant. The student will be a part of a unique opportunity to read, visualize, hear and touch the material. The best part is that you can replay it or review it at any time day or night.
We hope that you will seriously consider signing up for the next class. It is never too early to gain the skills required for the 21st century.
