This chapter shares the experiences from a faculty member who teaches an online course-Shakespeare’s Major Plays, and from an instructional designer who helps the faculty design the course. It also relates the effective use of Course Management Tool-WebCT, to facilitate teaching activities and to engage student learning. This chapter concludes that a successful online course depends on two important factors, learner-engaged teaching and effective use of technology. The balance between the two enhances the efficacy of education and technology.
