Distance learning has reached a sufficient level of maturity that it has made it acceptable. Online teaching environments, multimedia educational systems and numerous forms of technology allow distance learners to engage in the learning process. However, adult students who are not very familiar with technology and have been away from school for many years may still experience difficulties especially during the beginning of their studies. This paper describes the design and development of courseware for an introductory course for a distance learning undergraduate computer science program. It discusses the pedagogical strategies and design decisions for providing sufficient and efficient support as well as instructional activities that can engage and motivate the novice learner. It proceeds by presenting the individual components of the courseware and how the design strategies were incorporated and finally it presents the architecture and technologies that were used for the development of the learning environment.
