Abstract

Well-designed courses for the online environment include teaching strategies that address multiple learning styles and require active participation by the learner. The design of this undergraduate research course incorporated Jeffries' Hyperlearning Model (7) and the seven principles of good practice by Chickering and Gamson (8). Course mapping was used to guide the learner and ensure that the learner's activities did not focus on the course interface. The map was embedded throughout the course with hyperlinks between and among course content, learning activities, and outcome measurements. A freeware program was used to create interactivity and self-testing. • An evaluation conducted to compare the online research course and the traditional classroom course revealed no significant difference between the courses. A more encompassing evaluation is needed for empirical testing of the educational model and revision of the course.
