Universities are changing delivery methods for courses in order to meet the demands of today's college students. The increasing usage of internet-based courses has significant implications for institutions of higher education. With a goal of expanding enrollment, many are interested in delivering online instruction. At the same time, the proliferation of internet courses leads to questions concerning the quality of online learning. This study focuses on students' perceptions of internet-based courses and the reasons students take such courses. Recommendations to deliver quality learning experiences in the virtual classroom are discerned.
