The creation of course websites can allow instructors to organize materials such as syllabi, handouts, and lecture notes. Although the benefits of course websites have been established at the university level, little is known about K-12 teachers' creation and subsequent use of these sites. In this study, 43 in-service teachers participated in a technology integration course, and were taught the technical components of building a course website. Through an online survey that contains quantitative and qualitative responses, participants will elucidate the degree to which they continue to utilize their website ten weeks after the conclusion of the technology course. The results of this study will illustrate the factors that encourage the use of course websites as well as barriers that impede their use.
