The authors will discuss successful approaches to online course development and delivery. We will explain a course development process including the evolution of both content and structure. A course development discussion will revolve around a tool created to discuss, track, and evaluate courses as they are created. Discussion of course content will focus on the enrichment of courses through the use of graphics, multi-media and online resources. Discussion of structure will focus on the changes in structure made possible by the use of online resources, and the movement of courses from heavily text-based designs to more effective designs for students who favor an auditory or kinesthetic learning style. At the session's conclusion, participants should have an understanding of possible course development strategies and content and structure innovations, their relative merits and resources needed for development.
