Abstract: Among the multitude of ways to incorporate technology into the curriculum to prepare tomorrow's teachers to use technology is to develop completely web-based courses which infuse technology requirements into all elements of the coursework. This paper describes instructional design-related Lessons Learned in the development of a web-based multimedia course developed for preservice and inservice teachers. Findings also are reported concerning the technology-related self-efficacy, self-regulation, cognitive engagement and other important learner characteristics of preservice and inservice teachers (N=102) participating in a technology-mediated learning environment.
