ONLINE COURSE MODEL STRUCTURE FOR E-LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS

S. AlShidhani

Sultan Qaboos University (OMAN)
As educational institutes drifting towards digital and electronic media, and relying more on online e-learning, a common architecture and structure become a necessity to ensure smooth integration, compatibility, efficiency for instructors and learners. The paper describes the institutional, faculty, and students requirements and how it was used to inform the design of a flexible learner-centered structure for online courses. The objectives, the driving forces and literature findings are highlighted as part of the investigating the essential components to create an effective, interactive and efficient online learning environment.

Science based courses were the main targeted courses that include Astronomy, Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Geology, Mathematics and Physics. The natures of these courses and the possible format of online assessments were investigated as an input to the design process. Components were sorted based on relevancy as well as on learners’ expectation. Ease of navigation and flexibility were used to shape the branching listing.
