Sample text

In 1996, the research project launched field trials to meet the following objectives: 0 to develop and study state of the art Web-based technology for postsecondary online course delivery; to conceptualize teaching and learning models applicable to Virtual-U; and to illuminate models and methods for all instructors interested in utilizing the Web. So far, data have been gathered from a corpus of 450 courses taught by 250 faculty to a total of 15 000 students. Using an iterative approach, research results feed into the development of Virtual-U tools and drive the design of refinements that enhance learning and teaching activities.

By 1994, with the dramatic developments of multimedia on the Web, the Virtual-U team decided to develop the Virtual-U as a Web-based system. ca. This national collaborative program links Canadian researchers and client communities involved in the development, application, and evaluation of advanced education technologies based on collaborative learning and knowledge building. The TLoNCE supports a variety of large and smaller-scale projects related to telelearning research, development, and commercialization efforts.

Course credits are based on demonstration of mastery of the course objectives. Typically, participation in activities such as group discussions, seminars, debates, simulations, and individual and/or group projects, all mediated through the online learning environment, would characterize a virtual course. Hence, to a remarkable degree, the activities are similar to those in a physical university course, although they are mediated differently. Students in a virtual university typically interact with faculty, peers, and curricula through a computer conferencing system, which is integrated with other course design and course management tools in the virtual learning environment.
