Abstract

The institution-wide adoption of web-based learning technologies at the Technical University of British Columbia (TechBC) has led to a significant departure from traditional duties for faculty. This paper reports the study results of a task analysis of course development and delivery processes for faculty at TechBC. The study identified critical tasks for academic staff, the tasks most difficult to do, and why these tasks were a problem. Study participants reported a large proportion of course authoring is done off-campus and outside the web development environment. Participants also reported excessive time required for data management tasks associated with team management and assignment grading.
