Running behind the Best Pedagogy To Develop a Telematised Teaching Environment: A Case Study between Turkey and the USA.
Ozden, M. Yasar; Cagiltay, Kursat
This paper focuses on developing, implementing and evaluating an online, graduate-level distance education course--the first distance-based course to be offered over the Internet for students in Turkey. The authors present experiences of setting up such a course when students and faculty are 10,000 miles apart. The limitations and difficulties that distance course designers might face when designing a course for students in a developing country are shown. Experiences and findings that resulted from this course are presented, along with background information on the Turkish educational system, course details, pedagogical approaches, technical and administrative problems, political concerns, user support, assessment, modifications, and future plans.
