Abstract

With the Internet's rapid growth, the Web has become a powerful medium of teaching and learning at a distance (Khan, 1997). The idea of educating oneself with the flexibility of time and place offered by distance learning is gathering momentum and making an impact throughout society. Drucker (2000) suggests that the distance learning market will grow to hundreds of billions of dollars in the near future. In an age where the use of information and communications technologies (ICT) is regarded as essential to many daily activities, academics are coming under increasing pressure to offer courses online and to adapt their teaching to accommodate new technologies. The use of computer-mediated communication to create online classrooms has become a popular means of distance learning, in mixed mode along with face-to-face instruction as well as in a completely online mode with ICT providing the sole channels of education at a distance.
