Abstract: This paper provides an overview of the development of a model curriculum in information technology—the Model Curriculum in Organizational and End-User Information Systems. The model was developed by a curriculum committee made up of educators and professionals in a variety of locales and specialties in the field of information technology and end-user information systems. The paper covers the evolution of the curriculum model; the process of its development, including the use of a groupware product named Facilitate.com that enabled the group of disparate committee members to overcome the challenge of working together on this project; and the final model curriculum, complete with fully developed courses.
Keywords: curriculum, IT curriculum, end-user information systems, curriculum development
