Abstract

Invisible Universe Online is an Internet-delivered distance-learning course for secondary science teachers which focuses on astronomical origins and multiwavelength astronomy. Developed through support from NASA's Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) and the Space Infrared Telescope Facility (SIRTF) Education and Public Outreach programs, the course was implemented to test approaches to distance learning for use in future teacher flight training for SOFIA. We will autopsy each semester of the course in order to show how we approached challenges faced in developing a highly effective on-line course, providing a case study in online course development for preparing instructors to teach in the online environment. We invite both novice and expert online instructional designers to review our mistakes, innovative solutions, and successful strategies as we work toward understanding and enhancing the online learning environment.
