Abstract

A survey was designed incorporating questions on 28 attributes shown in the literature to be quality features in online academic courses in higher education. This study sought to investigate the ongoing practice of instructional designers and instructors in the United States with respect to their incorporation of these quality best practices into their design process and course content. Although most respondents indicated they included the majority of the quality attributes in courses they designed or taught, a significant number rarely or never included some of the generally accepted features shown to result in positive learner outcomes.RsumNous avons men une enqute dont les questions portaient sur les 28 critres de qualit (identifis dans le cadre d\u2019une revue de littrature) des cours en ligne dans l\u2019enseignement suprieur. Cette tude cherchait faire ressortir dans quelle mesure les bonnes pratiques dfinies concernant la qualit sont mises en \u0153uvre par les concepteurs pdagogiques et les enseignants, aux Etats-Unis, dans leur processus de conception des cours et le contenu de ces derniers. Bien que les rpondants indiquent, pour la plupart d\u2019entre eux, qu\u2019ils intgrent la majorit des critres de qualit dans les cours qu\u2019ils conoivent ou enseignent, un nombre significatif d\u2019entre eux n\u2019intgre que rarement voire jamais certains de ces critres communment considrs comme ayant un impact positif sur la russite des tudiants.
