Abstract: In this paper the seven principles for good practice in undergraduate education that were developed by Arthur Chickering and Zelda Gamson are reviewed and the use of technology, especially web-based online technology, to apply these principles in teaching and learning is examined. An example of such an implementation in an introduction to computers class, taught online at a community college in south-central Kentucky is discussed. Limitations of the study and suggestions for future implementations are also discussed.
