Abstract

Educational institutions have made significant progress in enabling student success in distance learning by delivering academic programs utilizing course management systems, accessing electronic library resources, and through a wealth of student services that use help desks and campus portals. Enabling instructor success in researching and designing curricula for teaching in distance learning programs is an area where institutions still face significant challenges. This chapter presents a number of these challenges and describes how MERLOT (Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning and Online Teaching), an international consortium, can facilitate successful teaching and learning with technology.
