Osman, Mohamed Eltahir
International Journal of Instructional Media, v32 n4 p353 Fall 2005
There is a growing number of web-based and web-assisted course development tools and products that can be used to create on-line learning environment. The utility of these products, however, varies greatly depending on their feasibility, prerequisite infrastructure, technical features, interface, and course development and management tools. WebCT is a full-featured product that was rated very high among the available web course development products (Hazari, 1998). Sultan Qaboos University has chosen the WebCT course development tool due to its fairly easy to use authoring interface, on-line technical support, and sound pedagogical components. In this article, the author investigates students' reactions to the utility of WebCT as an exemplary on-line learning environment, and highlights some implications and prerequisites for designing on-line learning environments.
