In this chapter, a philosophical framework used in the development of an online course is provided. This philosophical framework is largely based on sociological theory that argues the need for a student-centered approach to learning in the modern age. The authors argue that this is an appropiate approach for the present and the future, which they consider will increasingly need to address changing learner needs and demands. A learner-centered approach can provide for self-paced learning, peer assessment, and opportunities for interactions with fellow students, work colleagues, and other peers. To date, there have been few examples of the integration of information technologies with emerging trends in distance and lifelong learning.
