The author discusses the transition of one face-to-face class to an online setting through his own teaching experiences. It examines the history of one course's delivery method as well as its implications and the incorporation of new media tools. It notes that by creating a more interactive system where students and teachers could communicate through blogs, email and discussion forums, it became more engaging and more reflective of an actual face-to-face experience. Results also showed improved grades among students.
