Development of a Web-based Course in Radiological Engineering

Zhongxiang Zhao, Eugene E. Rutz University of Cincinnati

Abstract The purpose of this paper is to supply a full procedure for designing a web-based course and illustrate the design with a course developed for Radiological Engineering. The simple corporate identity (CI) design is introduced. The organizational and navigational structures of a web-based course are discussed in detail. A tree with a return-to-home page link, which is a practical navigational structure for a web-based instructional design, was applied. A simple page layout was used based on printing consideration. The HTML source code templates for every major web page are given and explained.

A graduate course in Radiological Engineering was developed using the procedure described. The course was developed in eight modules with the modules having a consistent format and navigational structure. The course was developed collaboratively by the instructor who provided content expertise and pedagogical design and a graduate teaching assistant who provided development and HTML expertise. Testing of HTML coding and revision of all material was performed prior to posting material on the server.
