Abstract

The continued growth of online course development and delivery within higher education has created questions about what determines quality in an online course. This paper examines one university’s approach towards ensuring quality is incorporated into its online course offerings by creating an instructional strategies framework based on learning theories. This framework is introduced and instructional strategies identified.
