Course design and delivery in the context of flexible learning at the University of the South Pacific (USP) is over 40 years young. Over that time, course development and delivery methodologies progressed almost parallel to the educational technologies of the day, diverse learner characteristics and changing landscape of higher education among other things. Course design and delivery has arguably been a constant challenge in terms of monitoring progress and ensuring that more than 500 courses are delivered annually, on time and with fewer issues as possible to a regional student base encompassing 12 Pacific Island Countries. The Centre for Flexible Learning Course Manager (CFLCM), a home grown project management tool was developed to better manage the course design and delivery process. The primary users of this tool are a team of 25 specialists comprising Instructional Designers, Education Technologists and Electronic Publishers coordinated by the Senior Instructional Designer. It has been a year since the tool was developed and introduced to the team. This paper presents the experiences of the team in terms of the implementation and use of the CFLCM and implications for future use.
