As universities respond to the recent demand for E-commerce, faculty members are now being assigned the task of developing, implementing, and teaching E-commerce courses. Since E-commerce is intertwined in almost all areas of business, most business courses now include some discussion on pertinent E-commerce topics. However, many information systems departments are discovering the need for a course that exclusively deals with the technical issues of E-commerce or web development. This study presents several critical success factors in developing and offering a course focused exclusively on web development. Critical success factors presented include book and software adoption, where the course fits in the curriculum, the skill sets of students entering the web development course, and faculty development.
