A continuing engineering education course on process burners used in the hydrocarbon and petrochemical industries contained some basic theory that proved to be a concern for many students. Recent graduates felt too much time was spent on it, while those who graduated some time ago wanted more time spent on it. Instructors felt rushed trying to cover all the required material. An online course consisting of a series of short Web-based modules was developed to address these concerns. This allows students to proceed at their pace, while freeing classroom time for instructors. The asynchronous course is completed by the students prior to attending the face-to-face class.
