Trentin G. Designing online education courses. In: Computers in the Schools, vol. 17 (3-4) pp. 47 - 66. Haworth Press, Inc, 2001.
The aim of this article is to focus on the main elements that characterize online course design, a process usually comprising two strictly related macro-phases: the course plan itself and the communication architecture for the development and running of the proposed learning activities. The article addresses the impossibility of designing an online course on the basis of criteria typical of onsite education, and emphasizes the importance of adopting methods and strategies that are compatible with the technological medium and the communication dynamics to which it gives rise. The suggestions that will be made are not intended to represent a codified formula for the design of online courses, but rather to provide discussion points on key issues within the process.
