The advent of web technology has brought learning to a global scale through online education. That students from all over the world attend virtual classes is no longer a newborn phenomenon. Many higher educational institutions fasten the speed to catch up with this new trend, offering degree programs and courses online to meet the needs of the non-traditional and dynamic students. At the same time, institutions and faculty members are facing new challenges to maintain and improve the instructional quality in this international classroom. The presentation will explore the important factors directly related to the design of quality online course.
