AbstractAsynchronous, online courses in fish physiology and recirculation aquaculture were developed using a standard html web site for delivery of content. The content was presented with text, Shockwave Flash (swf) animations, image mapped photographs, and streaming video. The text portions included an interactive glossary and assignments that were linked to the text at appropriate points for immediate access by the students. More than a hundred traditional scientific illustrations were brought to life thorough swf animation. Many of the animations included hot spot links to additional illustrations and the animations had speaking captions.
