Last Fall, my university began an initiative to offer courses online in what many call a "distance learning" environment. Being an early adopter of the Internet and WWW in my traditional on-campus courses, I jumped at the chance to offer a course in an on-line environment. This paper will briefly explore the differences between on-campus and on-line education, discuss my approach for implementing the course (including a comparison/contrast of student perceptions and performance in both on-campus and on-line sections of the same course), and conclude with some implications for educators endeavoring to teach in a distance learning environment.
