This course is designed for ILT students and focuses on the design, development, management and evaluation of distance education programs. This practical course balances fact, theory and application as it examines the advantages of telecommunications (e-mail, WWW...) in distance education. It presents theories and models relating to distance education and discusses strategies for using it, demonstrates practical applications and closes with a discussion of the value of web-based distance education.
Each group/student should develop a Web-based portfolio of one-single page (see attached template) with links to portfolio components, as shown in the table and figure below. You should upload your portfolio to webs.com by the end of "week 14". Late portfolios will lose 5% of the final grade for each day late, including weekends. A student who is found using materials or tools produced by others improperly will be penalized. More information will be provided in week 12 lecture, or contact Dr Alaa Sadik at
