Abstract: The focus of this paper is primarily on the issues of complexity of designing and teaching online courses for large and medium size classes. These issues are discussed using, as examples, three different types of course: (1) fully custom developed online learning, (2) online learning using an adopted textbook and an online practices system, and (3) blended learning using Virtual Machine environment for secure, navigated hands-on practices. The paper investigates time factor related to structuring online presentation, attention span, development of video presentations, time management for exams and for hands-on online practices, cloud-based practice environments, instantiation of tests to help preventing cheating and to provide each student with a unique and fair test, security, managing online examination for large classes, and online proctoring.
