Cultivating innovative-methods for learning a new Knowledge is a multidimensional and onerous-projectized-activity. It is one of the key considerations in technical training, distant learning(DL) and education industry. The advancement in computer Based training, software, instructional techniques and management systems has changed the dynamics of University-departments and training methodologies. The induction of IT and artificial intelligence-aids and psychometric testing of highly skilled intelligentsia in a target focused team environment has tremendously enhanced the performance expectation from Man, Machine and Resources. The enterprise-resource-planning(ERP) implementation at universities for Smart-campuses has further reiterated the target focused team environment coupled with value-based corporate-culture. The concept of competitiveness demands that the dissemination and absorption of knowledge by the intelligentsia, staff and students must be achieved through exceptional effort. Conversely, competitiveness demands innovative methods for improving the Learn in or-Curves of individuals in technical training and linguistics specifically in an orthogonal team environment. This paper proposes an integrated frame work of implementing a new-innovative university-level-program (Course-Technovation)or bringing innovation in existing academic-program. The framework is based on integrated Systems-Engineering approach in light of diffusion of innovation (DOI) theory utilizing techniques of Project Management & Blooms-Taxonomy. Conversely, academic-project-management as per the dictates of Blooms taxonomy for orthogonal teams is yet another area briefly touched to take its proven advantages for University DL-Course-Technovation.
