Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to review problems encountered in web-based courses delivered at three different educational institutions. Implications are discussed based on distance education theories of interaction. Interaction is a vital issue to the design of online courses. Further inquiry that sheds light on online students' motivational characteristics and organizational skills is vital in order to empower educators to design instructionally sound courses and students to benefit from them. Results would also aid academic administrators to predict student success with the ultimate possible purpose of lowering attrition rates.
