Abstract:
Compared with full-time on-campus learners, part-time distance learners are faced with greater challenges as they pursue their higher education. Currently, Open University Malaysia (OUM) has 10,000 teachers out of its 23,000 learners. These teachers are sent by the Ministry of Education under a special contractual programme. Being distance learners, they have to cope with their responsibilities as full-time teachers while at the same time study on a part-time basis. As part of an effort by

The advancement of Internet technology has provided a platform for educators to introduce webbased learning as a new approach of instruction. Although thousands of web based learning environments have been developed, most of them are linear and sequential in nature. In this linear, tutorial approach, the information is presented to the learner and is followed by practices or quizzes and some form of feedback. Another alternative to this approach is inquiry learning, which may exist in severa
