(1997) Designing Web Based Instruction: A Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) Perspective. In: Khan (ed.) Web-Based Instruction. Englewood Cliffs. NJ: Educational Technology Publications, 221-225. Introduction: The general interest in the World Wide Web (WWW) as a medium for sharing and distributing textual and graphic information has brought about an increasing number of instruction-oriented web sites and web-based instructional pages. These range from offering supplemental (or even duplicate) instructional materials to students on campus to providing opportunities for off-campus individuals to complete courses via WWW. This chapter briefly discusses the design of web-based instruction from an HCI perspective, raising issues which instructors and designers need to consider in the design of web-based instruction, and suggesting ways in which instructors and designers can build optimal web instructional sites and pages.
