Abstract

The need for life-long learning in a technologically driven, global economy, and the swift development in the past two decades of two-way, interactive communication systems have contributed to the creation of new distance learning programs. The World Wide Web (Web), along with mainstream-oriented Web tools, combined with telecommunication systems, is becoming a very significant delivery method in high-er education. In an environment where state or district service areas no longer make sense, universities must compete on both the national and international arenas, establishing a presence in distance learning to meet the customers' needs (Nixon & Leftwich, 1998). In addition to the Web, if synchronous, video-based technology is included – the technology most often used to reproduce an in-person classroom envi-ronment at remote locations – teaching at a distance already exists within most colleges and universities. Still, many of today's new programs are turning to the Web to deliver instruction and provide content because it is easily accessible (Ethernet card or modem), very flexible (almost instant editing), and natu-rally can provide a very rich hypermedia learning environment.
