On line courses, like face-to-face courses, require some forms of assessment. In the context of constructivist philosophy, self-assessment is perhaps the most meaningful form of assessment. This paper will demonstrate some practical self-assessment strategies and techniques for learners taking web based online courses. These techniques and strategies are incorporated in an online course offered at Teachers College, Columbia University, which focuses on Hypermedia in Education. Making use of digital video, slides, online forms, rubrics, chats and reflections, these techniques and strategies have proved to be essential for the web-based course's learners to monitor their own learning.
