||Publishing on the Web: Opening the Doors of Community College Classrooms.
Nancy King & Susan Andrus Wood. NK: Albuquerque TVI CC; SW: Dona Ana CC, NM
Instructors who put their courses on the World Wide Web offer students greater learning
accessibility and flexibility. And now we're realizing that the trend in publishing course
materials online benefits teachers and the teaching enterprise in general. We will argue
that by publishing what we teach, we open the doors of our classrooms and invite our
colleagues in to see what we're doing, to share what works--and what doesn't--and to
engage in dialogue with us. Opening the doors of our classrooms online has made us better
teachers by motivating us to look more critically at what we teach, as well as allowing us
to share ideas with our colleagues. We also argue that publishing on the web enables us to
archive and promote our professional work and accomplishments through an ongoing online
curricula vitae with links to our online courses, papers and presentations. Our
presentation will discuss these ideas, as well as provide links to our own websites and
on-line curricula vitae.

||Evaluating Web-based Continuing Education Courses: Comments on Creating an
Evaluating Subject Area Guide. Dale Mueller. U of Phoenix OnLine Campus, CA
This project contributes to formalized evaluation of Web-based instructional offerings.
Evaluation criteria were developed and applied in the construction of a meta-site subject
area guide which contains evaluations of Web-based courses and LISTs for continuing
education for health care professionals <http://www.love2learn.com>.
This presentation includes site evaluation criteria regarding authority, quality, and
content for both courses and LISTs. This presentation also includes a description of the
process employed to evaluate the included sites as well as feedback received from content
experts and industry constituency. In the unregulated environment of Internet publishing,
web-based course offerings, particularly non-degree continuing education offerings created
without academic affiliations, run the risk of having visual appeal and site features
overshadow content and purpose. The published guide and evaluation tools are partial
fulfillment of a doctorate of education in institutional management at Pepperdine
University (graduation May, 1998), and are published on the Web at the URL shown.
