Abstract

Web Based Distance Learning (WBDL) is a form of distance learning based on providing instruction mainly on the World Wide Web. In developing several WBDL courses, the authors have learned much about the limitations of this paradigm, especially the lack of interactivity inherent in the Web. The purpose of this paper is to discuss some of the technologies we have used in our courses to overcome this lack of interactivity on the Web. The paper describes how technologies including Java/JavaScript, ActiveX/VBScript, a Web based bulletin board, and Web Chat can make WBDL courses more interactive.
