Distance education, which started out with closed circuit TV technology, has evolved into completely online courses. Not surprisingly, online education has emerged as a major form of e-business. This chapter offers helpful suggestions for those who are planning to develop and deliver online courses, either as part of an existing degree program or as a new totally online degree program. Wherever needed, an online MBA program is used as an example. The chapter considers such things as mission, curriculum planning, curriculum control, marketing, scheduling, course development, expectations from students and faculty, and strengths and weaknesses of online education.
