This chapter explores the role of instructors and the perspectives they bring to teaching in e-learning environments. It suggests that when instructors are developing e-learning courses, instruction is more effective if individual perspectives on teaching, as well as the principles of good teaching, are taken into consideration. Congruence between principles, perspectives, and practice enhance e-learning pedagogy. The model—reflect on the teaching approach, apply the principles of good teaching throughout the course, choose appropriate learning outcomes and activities, and review choices—is proposed as a guideline for effective teaching in e-learning environments.
