Costs of Developing and Delivering a Web-Based Instruction Course.
Harapnuik, Dwayne; Montgomerie, T. Craig; Torgerson, Carla
This paper describes "The Internet: Communicating, Accessing & Providing Information," a University of Alberta (Canada) credit course which is delivered over the Internet. The purpose of this course is to help students understand what the Internet is and to learn to use Internet tools. The paper: (1) discusses the primary development and delivery phases of this course, while also providing a general account of the time spent on each of the phases; (2) compares the costs of this course with those of similar face-to-face courses; and (3) offers an interpretation of these results and the possible implications for similar courses. Five tables present data on times for course development and pilot testing; total hours spent on operation and delivery of the course, number of interactions between students and instructors/teaching assistants, time spent in each area of the course by instructors/teaching assistants, and a summary of time spent on the course by instructors/teaching assistants. Two graphs present data on time spent on the course by the instructor and the teaching assistant and a comparison of times for delivering World Wide Web-based instruction and face-to-face instruction.
