Rediscovering First Principles through Online Learning ARTICLE


Quarterly Review of Distance Education Volume 4, Number 3, ISSN 1528-3518


Describes an evaluation of Web-based instruction at the University of Houston-Clear Lake (Texas) that showed that the design team had been distracted from many first principles of instructional design by the creative chaos on the Web and discusses how self-reflection and role definitions allowed the team to overcome these disappointments and return to basic first principles.
