An Absolutely Riveting Online Course: Nine Principles for Excellence in Web-Based Teaching
Henry, Jim; Meadows, Jeff
Canadian Journal of Learning and Technology, v34 n1 Win 2008
This article explores excellence in web-­based teaching. Drawing on the views of experts in the field and the perspective of their own years of experience, the authors compiled a list of 9 principles to provide direction in the search for online excellence. The principles include: the online world is a medium unto itself; sense of community and social presence are essential to online excellence; in the online world, content is a verb; great online courses are defined by teaching, not technology. The list is not intended to be an exclusive set of principles or a comprehensive guide to online teaching. Rather it is a collection of important ideas and suggestions for teaching excellence in the online world.
