With the increasing focus on life-long learning, and with the convenience and accessibility of the Internet, the market for web-based courses has expanded vastly in recent times–in particular in connection with continuing education. However, teaching web-based courses presents various technical as well as pedagogical challenges. Some of these challenges are addressed, and means to dealing with them are suggested.

The concept of learning objects and how they are used to form new courses are discussed.
