This Web site is a resource for faculty seeking ways to use Web-based technologies to accomplish key learning strategies. The guiding principle of this site is to go beyond technical skill towards a full examination of the teaching/learning issues in technology-enabled instruction. The site contains two modules; each explores issues in developing and teaching online courses with the use of technology. Module one provides information about the selection and use of various Web-based media, such as text, audio, video, still images, animated graphics, applets, and scripts, to accomplish a number of different learning strategies. The object of Module 1 is to assist faculty in creating and using various media in ways appropriate for their students' learning experience. Module two features faculty interviews about realities and successful practices in online course delivery. It also provides specific strategies for managing the use of technology in research assignments, small group projects, discussions, and other activities that foster interaction. Module 2 helps faculty use some of the materials presented in Module 1 to foster interaction among students and builds on Module 1 to develop broad ways of understanding the emerging pedagogy of online education.
