Abstract

This project consisted of the development of a Web-based course for the Advanced Placement (AP) Chemistry curriculum outlined by the College Board. The College Board is an association of schools, colleges, universities, and other educational organizations dedicated to making college courses available to all students. Through the College Board, college-level courses, including AP courses and exams, are available to students while still in high school. For further information about the College Board consult the following Internet site: http://www.collegeboard.org/. -- The unique aspect of this project was that the AP Chemistry course was developed to be delivered from a distance, utilizing the Internet. This project involved several components, including a complete set of 72 interactive lessons, with animation, which could be accessed via the World-Wide Web. Included within each lesson were references to a textbook, study guide and a CD-ROM that accompanied the textbook. The lessons were complemented with 12 laboratory activities that were also interactive in nature, utilizing online video demonstrations. The course was developed with the support of real-time online instruction utilizing multiple party video conferencing. -- This project report includes a literature review of current trends in distance education and Web course design, as well as a discussion of the final product. The challenges and limitations of designing and delivering such a course at a distance via the Internet are also addressed.
