Abstract In the 21st century, the Internet has become the dominant distribution system for distance education and training. Many faculty members are expanding their traditional delivery methods (lecture, laboratory, face-to-face discussion) to include educational options ranging from web- based course supplement to the complete delivery of courses online. The choices that faculty may consider range from simply posting a syllabus to creating web-based content to enhance classroom instruction to full online delivery.

While the primary focus of web-based delivery has been in the development of standalone web-based distance education courses, more faculty are beginning to use the web to supplement and enhance classroom instruction, creating “hybrid courses.”

The authors have chosen to supplement a traditional face-to-face on-campus CNC (Computer Numerical Control) course with an online component. WebCT-based CNC materials were developed in Spring 2002 and started being implemented in Fall 2002. The materials are currently used in a junior level, MIT3060 (Manufacturing and Industrial Technology 3060), ‘CNC Machining Practices’ course. The following modules are currently available in the WebCT system.

• Course Syllabus and Information • Lecture materials, supplements, and extra study materials • Calendar and Tips • Tests, labs, practice quizzes, and homework • CNC Glossary • Discussions, Chat, and E-mail • Grade Book
