Results Achieved to Date

  • May 2002: Online IST is made up of a series of IST courses, which have been designed and developed to allow an instructor to teach from a standard course structure. Each of the courses has been designed to allow for instructors to customize the offering to fit their individual needs. The Online IST courses have been constructed to utilize three main components:
    1. Course Content Interface
    2. Course Roadmap
    3. Course Communication Space
