Abstract

This roundtable/paper discusses design of high-structure high-dialogue online courses for both distance and hybrid students. Discussions on design of the online course include elements of Welcome page, the instructor’s page, student homepage, quizzes on course requirements and policies, course materials, assignments/assessment, self-check folder, learner-learner Blog discussion, learner-instructor communications, etc. Incorporating teaching strategies and best practices, the authors expect this roundtable/paper to provide ideas of designing online learning environments that embrace learners in a warmly welcomed way to reduce transactional distance among students.
