Abstract

The steady evolution of communications technology (radio, television,
interactive video, audio-graphics, electronic mail, Internet, intranet) has considerably
influenced the development of distance learning. This third generation of distance
education, which includes interactive video, email, Internet, intranet, and audio graphics
technologies, learning activities via these distance education systems has been redefined
to include and focus on teacher-student interaction. This paper examines technology,
student lifestyles, faculty characteristics and continuity, quality and quantity of courses,
quality and quantity of students, and interactivity as the primary ingredients of a
successful and effective on-line education program. In particular, the program at the
Information Technologies Institute in the School of Continuing and Professional Studies
at New York University, an asynchronous education programs, is demonstrated and
evaluated. Instructional design principles and novel authoring concepts are introduced to
the online course environment.
