Abstract: The trend in higher education is to develop electronic delivery of courses and even entire academic degree programs through the Internet by using a web-based form of distance education. To be successful in the delivery of online, or web-based, education, faculty must break away from the old paradigm of teaching and learning, and adopt new techniques suitable to the new environment. This paper provides some recommendations for an educator who is interested in developing an online course or enhancing a traditional course with an online component. These recommendations are based on several years of practical experience in developing and delivering online courses.

Keywords: Online education, Electronic learning, Distance education
