Full Title: Creating Asynchronous Learning Networks in Mathematics, Science, and Engineering Courses for Home-Based Learners

Synopsis: Article describes how Northern Virginia Community College's (NVCC) Extended Learning Institute (ELI) developed distance education engineering, mathematics, chemistry, and physics courses leading to an associate in science engineering degree. Describes how asynchronous learning networks (ALNs) into course design enables the development of courses that integrate interaction and collaboration with self-paced, independent modes of learning. Also discusses significant challenges in developing the program and program results.
