Abstract

The paper examines critical issues in web-based distance education including the changing role of faculty and students, instructional design for quality education, outcomes assessment, and administrative support. The premise of the paper is that educational excellence in online instruction requires institutional commitment to a learner-centered approach rather than a teacher-centered approach of education. Recommendations are made for quality measures and faculty development in adapting to methods of online teaching that facilitate a learner-centered education.
