Guidelines for Good Practice: Technology Mediated Instruction

Distance Learning
Technology Committee

This paper underscores that technology mediated instruction is an alternate mode of delivery, another tool in the instructor's toolbox, and should be held to the same standards as any other delivery method. This paper is not meant to suggest that traditional classroom instruction is obsolete or inferior. When appropriate, technology may assist learners in achieving their particular goals. Decisions surrounding the use of technology needs to be in the hands of the faculty.
