Summary WebCT development was initially targeted to realize my own teaching goals. However, my own initiatives became joint initiatives and collaborations with others, which further enriched the whole course. We had a clear goal for our phase one development, and we also formed a dedicated team in collaboration with CELT. After some intensive work, and within just a few short months, WebCT for BICH172/182 was lunched as scheduled in the beginning of the Fall semester, 2001. Clearly, it provides a good anchor for both teaching and learning. It is not only a convenient contact point between instructors and students, but also a good place for course materials. At the moment, there are four videos and ten animations, as well as other course materials available in our WebCT. Although we are only at phase-one of the course development with WebCT, I’d say this online tool for teaching has certainly been helpful to my course delivering, and that I wouldn’t do without it. This paper is not aimed at answering the ambitious question posed in the title, but is intended to give a personal account of a still on going attempt to develop a model one online course (BICH172 and BICH182).
