Abstract

Online teaching and learning has been in transition for its entire existence. The number of courses offered at a distance has grown rapidly. According to the National Center for Education Statistics (Waits & Lewis, 2003), in 2000-2001 more than 56% of four-year colleges and universities in the United States offered distance education degree programs. In the academic year 2000-2001 alone, there were an estimated 3,077,000 enrollments in all distance education courses offered by 2-year and 4-year institutions, most of these offered online (Phipps, 2004). Many classroom based higher education programs, which meet in person regularly throughout a semester, use online technologies as well. Students and instructors use these “distance education” technologies to share files, present content, communicate with each other between class meetings and conduct other teaching and learning activities.
