Abstract: In this presentation we will discuss some of the unique features of an online distance education course: : 1) the online course design was created in such a way to manage the information overload that could occur with 45 students; 2) a team of three faculty from Towson University designed and taught the course; 3) students negotiated all but three of the course topics and selected the topic their small group would present to the class; and 4) the class used and modeled the use of distance technologies (we only physically met as a group three times).

No presider for this session.
