Describes project conducted by the Monroe County (NY) Health Alert Network and Rochester Institute of Technology to offer a series of asynchronous instructor-led online learning (AILOL) courses designed to enhance the workforce competencies of nontraditional responders in planning for and responding to bioterrorism and other health emergencies. This e-learning initiative had a high course completion rate (84%) with high levels of student satisfaction and success and delivered in a highly cost effective manner.
