Abstract:An experiential learning model known as INTEX (INTegrative EXercise) was implemented by the Information Systems department at a private western university. The purpose was to facilitate a team-based holistic learning experience in both content and application to supply a means of measuring student performance and further program development. In this paper, we explain how INTEX presents an adoptable experiential learning model, how INTEX is administered, and the extent to which INTEX fulfills each of its seven objectives based on student, alumni, and faculty feedback. Our main findings are: INTEX provides a compelling real-world case simulation, gives students an invaluable teamwork experience, facilitates the development of both technical and soft presentation skills, and furnishes a reference point for students to utilize in their careers. It also serves as a means of measuring program performance used to further IS curriculum development.
