Engage students; integrate technology; these are the 21st century imperatives. Preparing students today is markedly different than that of past decades. The world of work is changing; as a result, the skills of those who wish to succeed in it must change to meet the needs. To provide differentiated instruction, to build technology in the contemporary classroom, is more challenging than ever before, given the rapidly increasing rate of technological improvement. Educators are linking knowledge, skills, and technology in the developed world. The net results have proved to be positive. What about technology integration in the classrooms in Lebanon? Indeed, what is the educator integrating at the MBA level? How much knowledge, skills, and technology? Collaboration can provide a seamless support system as can student-faculty involvement. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the impact of innovatively integrating the discussion forum on student engagement at the graduate level. Case assessment was conducted. Implications and recommendations were made.
