Content delivery is one the most challenging – as well as one of the most important – aspects of developing an online course. Content is the heart of any course,
so how content is presented to students strongly impacts student success and satisfaction. The best way to deliver content varies from course to course, but there are several best
practices that can be used to ensure your students are learning the content they need to succeed, regardless of the platform you choose to deliver that content. Many of the best practices in online
content delivery are the same as face-to-face content delivery.
