This investigation surveyed 249 geographically dispersed online students' computer skills, attitudes toward Internet-delivered instruction, course features students valued, and course features included in students' current distance education courses. Results were assessed by demographics. Results revealed higher self-reported computer skills for participants with greater computer use and exposure, however, a number of skills commonly incorporated into Internet-aided instruction were rated lower. Attitudes toward Internet-aided instruction were generally positive, with the most favorable reported by older students, graduate students and females. While findings relating to course features revealed general agreement between course features desired by students and those included in their current courses, there were mismatches. Implications for Internet-aided course design are presented.
