The introduction of Web-based course instruction into an existing degree programme offers the opportunity to re-examine models supporting learning and the transfer of knowledge among students enrolled in such courses.

The instructor's role moves to that of a facilitator who seeks to stimulate interactions between students and between students and the instructor, in the pursuit of improved learning and knowledge base construction.
