Abstract

The majority of the literature on web-based distance education (WBDE) focuses on learning styles, teaching methods, the effectiveness of WBDE as an educational medium, or on converting existing, traditional course materials to a web-based format. There is a gap in the literature dealing with core communications issues. Basic issues such as sender/source, message, transmitter, receiver, and feedback as they relate to design on the World Wide Web (WWW or Web) are conspicuously absent from the literature. Through published literature and personal observation, this article explores those aspects, the unique design problems associated with WBDE, and basic web design principles that can help overcome them.
