A best practice framework for developing higher education online music education courses (i.e. apprenticeship) is offered by connecting the main components for online course design with focused outcomes in learning and motivation. The main components discussed include: teaching approach, ways of student learning and models for course design that (i.e. ADDIE model (Molenda, 2003), Gagné’s Conditions for Learning (1985) and Clark & Mayer’s (2003) Principles of Design.
