The demand for engineering courses in online format is growing for both undergraduate and graduate level coursework. Because of the abundance of software tools available for creating virtual learning environments, online courses are rapidly evolving past the posting of hour-long lectures in video format to lecture notes that are interactive, instant self-assessment feedback, and teaching modules that are fully ADA compliant. This paper explores the challenges faced by faculty members in creating a fully online course that can effectively present challenging, engaging material that solidly focuses on student learning objectives and provides authentic assessment of those same objectives.
