Abstract

This article will review quantitative and qualitative research that has been performed for the analysis of web course design. It was written in consequence of a literary review of the pedagogy to be included in a good online course. Predictably, it was found that the necessary ingredients should closely resemble strategies that enhance learning in the traditional classroom. The challenge for educators has been to develop methodologies that will replicate these strategies in the virtual world. Literature reviews substantiate several methodologies that should be used when developing an online course. They include accommodating diverse learning styles, incorporating a good study guide with a content section, providing a communicative network and establishing a review process. Several models of effective online delivery systems are demonstrated.
