Abstract

This study explores the transactional relationship between three professors’ beliefs and values about teaching and learning and the course management system within which their beliefs were manifested. This study used a qualitative design with a multiple case study approach. Although each instructor was using the same course management system they all relied on very different instructional moves to teach the content of their courses. Several key issues emerged highlighting the transactional relationship between teachers and technology. Specifically, the instructors' knowledge of technology, content, and pedagogy created a “zone of possibility” that affected the manifestation of their beliefs and values in an online course.
