Abstract

In this paper we discuss the development and delivery of an award-winning credit course, The Internet: Communicating, Accessing, and Providing Information (Montgomerie & Harapnuik, 1996 http://www.quasar.valberta.ca/nethowto), which is delivered completely over the Internet. During May and August of 1996, more than 100 students took the course. This paper provides a description of this course as well as a set of observations and recommendations for the development of future courses. After a discussion of the development of the course, the philosophy of the course is presented. A discussion of the structure of the course includes the instructional design, an acknowledgment of androgogical principles, and the support for multiple methods of learning as well as a discussion of the technical details of the course design. Examples of the kinds of student learning are then provided, followed by estimates of the cost to design and deliver this course. Student-generated evaluations of the course in particular and this kind of learning in general are then provided. Finally, a set of observations, suggestions for improvements, and recommendations for future course development are provided.
