Abstract

Developing a course for online study by off-campus students requires a major change of approach to teaching and learning. This study outlines the constructivist theoretical basis and the approach to teaching applied in the development of a humanities course. The study includes analysis of the turning points in the students' learning as identified in asynchronous discussion postings and evaluation feedback from a post-course questionnaire. Analysis of discussions and student feedback are used to demonstrate student learning and attitudes to the new mode of study.
