A great website that gives examples and guides the novice or emerging faculty through the steps to developing an online course in terms of instructional design to interactions. One thing that would make the site better is if the font were larger, which would make it easier to read.

Although the research cited is more than 10 years old, the facts of that research still hold true, so do not be turned off by the copyright date of 2006. There are best practices and examples for all of the principles. There is definitely enough here to get faculty up and going while considering all of the important aspects of a good online course.
