Abstract

The previous chapter introduced the general instructional technology theory and went through the application of the ADDIE model for the development of an online teaching/learning system and online course materials. It also analyzed the requirements of an online teaching/learning system and provided the procedures to collect the requirement related information. The requirement analysis is covered by the first phase of the ADDIE model. This chapter translates the requirement related information into technical terms.

Background

Technology is the driving force of an online teaching/learning system. It is often the most challenging part to deal with. Not only does the computer service department need to use technology to construct the system, but also the students, faculty members, and staff members have to depend on it for online teaching and learning. Properly identifying the technology requirements is a critical step in developing an online teaching/learning system that can achieve the design goals (Horton & Horton, 2003).
