Communications technology is revolutionizing Higher Education as it adapts to the new telecommunications technology to provide formal education through distance learning using the Internet. Due to this paradigm shift, several universities in the United States (Georgia Tech., Stanford, Penn State, etc.) are delivering entire degree programs primarily at the graduate level, through the World Wide Web. Primary beneficiaries of this new technological approach are the students who can work through the course at his or her own pace and in their own space provided they have access to the WEB. The major challenge that needs to be addressed by higher education institutions is how to motivate faculty members to embrace this approach. Faculty buy-in is essential to engage in distance learning through Internet at any institution. The least resistance path to stimulate faculty may be to provide less cumbersome technology to prepare and deliver the course material. This paper discusses the CourseInfo management tool used at Arizona State University to create and maintain online courses and course supplements.
