The purpose of this study was to document instructional designers' perceptions of the rewards and challenges they faced while working with faculty to convert traditional graduate-level courses into web-based courses for online master's level degree programs. A multi-method information gathering system was used, including interviews with designers and content analyses of their course-by-course instructional design plans and problem logs. This study also focused on providing formative feedback to both designers and faculty so that others may learn from their efforts. The results of this study support a purposeful and detailed approach to planning web-based courses.
