The interactive nature of music classes at the university level have traditionally necessitated a face-to-face learning environment. New digital technology and the increasing acceptance and use of the internet have made it possible to create effective interactive, multi-media activities for students to access and utilize on-line. In the music discipline, computers have been used effectively to augment undergraduate courses, providing computer-assisted drills and delivery of facts and knowledge mostly for music history and appreciation, and elementary music theory and aural skills. With the opportunity to connect professor to student using the internet, other more advanced courses may now be offered to remote students. Here a course in Schenkerian Analysis, an advanced type of graphic music analysis, developed by Austrian music theorist, Heinrich Schenker (1868-1935), has been adapted for the web using WebCT, a platform for delivering courses on-line. Noteworthy are the innovative method for displaying the Schenkerian graphs, employing notation software, Music Press, the animations which manipulate the graphs, and the unique opportunity for students in other counties to interact with top Schenkerian scholars at the University of North Texas.
