E-Learning is emerging as one of the fastest organizational uses of the Internet; it is also applicable across all areas of workforce training. However, the quality of e-learning has been questioned. High dropout rates for e-learning courses reflect that learners fail to complete e-learning courses (Ganzel, 2001). The current research, the problem that most of the designers face is that established sets of heuristics for both designing and evaluating e-learning do not exist. Learning is the main goal of all e-learning systems and applications, which is rather abstract in nature and difficult to evaluate. In this chapter, we will explore a set of design guidelines for asynchronous e-learning applications as well as their practical implications.
