Summary

Corporations and universities are investing millions of dollars in distance learning and web-based training (WBT) initiatives. Expert guidance on all practical aspects of WBT site design is a critical component to success that many organizations are missing. Written by a leading WBT design expert, this extremely well-illustrated guide walks readers through every phase of designing, setting-up, and managing an WBT site--from graphics and content design, to finding potential students and assessing their needs, from hardware and software options, to usability testing.

The surge in the number of online training sites has created an unprecedented demand for experts who know all aspects of Web-based training (WBT) site design. Written by bestselling author William Horton, this book provides the hands-on and practical guidance that trainers demand. Packed with over 100 examples, this well-illustrated guide walks you through every phase of designing WBT, from analyzing your course requirements and assessing the needs of potential students to designing a course for a global audience.

You'll find out how to combine elements into effective and interesting learning sequences, discover how to overcome any technical hurdle that may arise, how to offer materials that motivate learning, and how to use Web technologies to create 21st-century alternatives to traditional courses.
