Abstract

The use of the Internet for delivering courses has become a pervasive influence on undergraduate and graduate curricula. Current figures indicate that fully 12% of Internet users in the United States use the Internet to take an online course for credit toward a degree of some kind (Pew/Internet, 2006). That number is indicative of the rapid proliferation of online courses over the past several years.
