In this presentation, the use of database-driven instruction in a preservice technology-integration course will be described and demonstrated. Classroom web-evaluation activities were modified for online interaction using a database-driven lesson. An instructor with no background in computer programming inserted her instruction and links to online resources, chose various interactivity types, created quizzes and surveys, and commented on student postings. The study reports on the student postings and attitudes toward the online instruction. Pre-test and post-test data were also compared between students taking the online instruction and on students taking the classroom-equivalent version.
