Course and module objectives must be behavioral, measurable, and clearly linked to both individual class session objectives and to assignments, projects, and examinations. Difficult content should be broken up into small bites. To the extent possible, liberally sprinkle it with visuals.

Difficult content is almost always somewhat boring to read, so the teacher can add interest if visuals are colorful.

Some teachers feel that these types of courses overcome the limitations of a Web course (loss of the face-to-face meetings between instructor and student, and loss of demonstrations that teachers believe can be done only in person), but allow people to be distance students because they require only a few days of on-campus work.

Obviously, student evaluations of a course are one important source of information about the quality of a course (either online or on-campus).
