Abstract

Web-based course support systems are essential for supporting online teaching and learning environments. They provide tools to enroll learners, to deliver the course materials to the learners, and to administer and manage the learning. All of these tasks are functions of the particular system in use and are typically achieved efficiently and effectively. Several commercial Web-based systems have been designed for this purpose and successful implementation requires little design and input from the teacher. But when we set about to examine how well Web-based systems support effective learning, the outcomes are far less automatic and are dependent on teacher input and activity. In particular, effective learning depends on the curriculum and learning resources that are integrated into the course support system and the manner in which appropriate learning activities have been designed and implemented. This paper will examine issues associated with the use of curriculum and learning resources within Web-based course support systems and the effectiveness of the resulting online learning environments.
