This paper reports on a three year study which explored best practices in the development and delivery of courses in online learning environments. The research was conducted in several phases with post-secondary online instructors and learners. Phases included two iterations of a group consensus technique—the online Delphi, the development of a handbook articulating better practices, a week-long Summer Institute on Best Practices in Online Teaching and Learning, and a reciprocal mentoring process between a graduate student and online instructors which took place during the subsequent academic year. Results indicate that critical factors for successful implementation of effective online teaching include: the importance of creating an online learning community, key design factors of online courses, the utilization of collaborative learning strategies, the benefits of building a community of practice, and an ongoing commitment to distance education and to instructors’ professional development by the institution.
