Project management for elearning, training, etc. involves the intersection of instructional design with project management processes.  The IPECC project management model involves 5 stages:

  1. Initiating
  2. Planning
  3. Executing
  4. Controlling
  5. Closing

This type of project management is directly in line with Six Sigma, total quality management processes, and continuous improvement process that organizations may already be implementing. My IDT 7095/8095 course will be working through these stages, as well as the instructional design stages, in order to produce successful elearning products.  Here are a number of resources for understanding and teaching elearning project management.
