Abstract: This presentation is based on research into web-based course delivery to high school students within small rural schools located throughout Newfoundland and Labrador. It focuses on the need for a model of delivery that can accommodate a wide range of students, as well as a practical set of recommendations directed at maximizing student success in the distance-delivered portion of their high school program. The research centred on groups of learners who had already experienced web-based courses along with E-teachers, school support teams, parents, school administrators, and distance education personnel. Analysis of data collected through surveys and focus group work resulted in the development of a model framework for course delivery. This framework, the recommendations made, and an examination of the implications of successful (or non-successful) participation in high school web-based learning for those students who choose to pursue post-secondary education options after high school will be discussed.
