ABSTRACT  
This paper presents the business case analysis upon which a distance learning strategy
was formed.  Instrumental in the process was the Hedgehog concept and the report 
“Quality on the Line: Benchmarks for Success in Internet-Based Distance Education.”  
The team reached a consensus and recommended distance learning technologies be 
util-ized at the University but within appropriate guidelines. Other instructional 
organizations may be interested in applying a similar approach or seeing the results 
of this approach to determine their own distance learning policies.
