The trend toward the use of the Internet in academia is clear with the number of courses using the web for the delivery of course materials ever increasing. There are many positive reasons for using the web in a course, but this raises a number of new issues for faculty, including the time needed and salary concerns. We present a table of six levels of web site use and discuss the major problems associated with the creation and development of web courses. Practical suggestions are offered for dealing with problems from the authors’ experiences and the research literature. The final section covers global enrollment, the electronic university, and the trend toward use of the web for the delivery of course materials.
