The Capstone course for the Software Product Management specialization required a unique type of learner interaction. Onlea Corporation and the University of Alberta collaborated to bring to life a project simulation where the student started his first day as Product Manager interacting with a new client to gather requirements and formulate a project plan:
A brief sample section of the learner interaction can be found here: http://bit.ly/28Pvku6

The full specialization is hosted as a MOOC in Coursera (http://bit.ly/22afaFt) and it is composed of 6 courses where the student is given the theory to master Agile software management practices to lead a team of developers and interact with clients. In the final Capstone Project, the student is able to practice and apply management techniques to realistic scenarios that are faced as a Software Product Manager.

In this talk we will take you through the design process followed to develop the Software Product Management Capstone. We will also review the gamification techniques currently used to generate engagement and increase completion rates in Online Courses and Digital Learning Experiences.
