Description

A 3-credit, online forest measurement course designed for sophomore-level students was created and taught for the first time during Fall 2001 in the School of Forest Resources at the University of Arkansas-Monticello. Narrated PowerPoint presentations saved in html format were used to deliver the lecture material. An overview of the course material, the time required preparing the course, and issues that should be considered by first-time online instructors are discussed. All things considered, the course was a success despite the heavy upfront workload and technical issues encountered.
