Abstract

The purpose of this chapter is to present the project work and experience of developing post-secondary distance education in a challenging and diverse setting where the author has been involved in the design and implementation of the technology-based education. The experience of the project demonstrates how challenges for generating engagement with Webbased online courses can be met and overcome. Online learning activities were analyzed in light of student feedback. This feedback, collected over the length of the project, indicated the positive and negative factors for the design, execution and revision of the online learning environment. These factors, to strengthen and reinforce learning, were judged successful in contributing to student achievement in meeting course and program learning objectives. The chapter concludes with a more general discussion of relevant development issues. This work is supported by a review of relevant literature.
