Abstract

In this paper we describe the design of a WWW-based course-support environment for a course in instructional-design theories, give an overview of how the environment was used as part of the course experience, and summarize the student evaluation of the course. Our conclusion is that such a course-support environment can extend the teaching and learning process, if well designed, by bringing added opportunities for communication, coaching, and the increase of student self-responsibility. We do not see such a tool as replacing the instructor, but extending him or her. The design of the environment should reflect this. Although the article describes the particular case of a course about instructional design, we argue that the conclusions can be valid for courses of a variety of disciplines and instructional approaches.
