Dr. Rico will provide an experience report introducing agile methods to a master’s degree program in software engineering at a large online university. He will describe the goals, objectives, strategy, and implementation plan for transitioning the program from traditional to agile methods. He will describe the adoption challenges he faced from both the faculty and students who were steeped in traditional methods. He will describe how three teams of 15 students in four time zones successfully built three fully functional e-commerce websites, lived to tell about it, and became agile converts.
