This paper describes the adaptation of a master's degree program so that the degree can be obtained by taking all the courses over the Internet. The degree program is Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering at the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering. A distinguishing feature of the adaptation is that it attempts to approximate the live classroom experience as closely as possible. This paper reviews, near the end of the first semester in which the required M.S. core classes have been offered live over the web, our motivation and experiences. Despite some minor drawbacks, the program is judged successful and will be made available to all eligible students worldwide starting Fall 2000.
