    Abstract

    In this paper we describe the design of a WWW-based course-support environment for a course in instructional-design theories, give an overview of how the environment was used as part of the course experience, and summarize the student evaluation of the course. Our conclusion is that such a course-support environment can extend the teaching and learning process, if well designed, by bringing added opportunities for communication, coaching, and the increase of student self responsibility. We do not see such a tool as replacing the instructor, but extending him or her. The design of the environment should reflect this. Although the article describes the particular case of a course about instructional design, we argue that the conclusions can be valid for courses of a variety of disciplines and instructional approaches.
