Open Access Graduate Research Paper

Abstract

Advances in communication technologies have rapidly led to interest in the development of online learning programs. The value of these programs is beginning to be accepted as a way of providing an alternative delivery system to students in higher education whose work schedules, family issues, or geographical location make it impractical to attend regularly scheduled classes on a college campus.

Despite the potential of online learning, online instruction is not simply a traditional class gone digital. The teaching and learning processes of traditional classes needs to be reexamined for online classes, as the technology becomes more widespread. Educators need to be aware .that there are many issues, both technical and non-technical, in moving a college course from the traditional classroom to cyberspace. This review of the literature addresses some of the non-technical issues.
