Abstract

Web-based learning provides a potentially powerful tool for implementing pedagogical principles where learners are expected to function as active, self-reflected, independent, and collaborative participants. But still, much of the development of Web-based learning is carried out without a true understanding of learning issues, mostly because technologies still drive the implementation of Web-based learning rather than pedagogical considerations. Moreover, Web-based learning lacks a systematic, engineering approach to the development process, resulting in bad design, poor quality, and maintainability. Thus, to realize the potentialities of Web-based learning, it may be necessary to rely on a software engineering methodology to transform Web-based learning to a tool that supports active learning.
