Abstract

When carefully designed and implemented, Web-based online learning is a dynamic process that promotes active, collaborative learning expert ences. To establish a learning environment that fosters critical thinking among students, faculty need to create learning activities that allow for higher level cognitive interactions among students. Using a variety of teaching strategies will meet the diverse learning styles of students and promote student engagement with the content. Incorporating best practices and benchmark standards for quality online education into the development and delivery of online courses helps ensure that students and faculty can concentrate their efforts on the teaching-learning process and achieve satisfactory educational outcomes.
