As online course has become a popular course delivery method in American higher education, developing online courses has raised controversial issues and challenges for many instructors. University administrators continually put pressure on them to develop and deliver online courses. Most instructors, however, are not responding as quickly as administrators would like. They faces some issues such as lack of technical support, lack of software/adequate equipment, lack of faculty/administrative support, the amount of preparation time required to create assignments, and student resistance. This chapter describes some issues in online courses using Course Management System (CMS) along with challenges that instructors face in higher education when preparing online courses.
