The main priority of the usage of e-learning is to reduce and upend the barriers that hinder the success of functioning online higher educational systems.  The      visions of the e-learning leaders of educational institutions is to understand the critical perspectives associated with web-instruction.  Suggestions will also be provided to enable e-learning leaders to reflect upon institutional goals that should be created before designing and implementing online curriculum and courses.  


This chapter will help you make decisions about designing a course curriculum that meets the needs of the institution and the students. The institutional objectives guide the curriculum and course design process by “describing precisely what the targeted learners should know, do, or feel on completion of the planned learning” (Rothewell & Kazanas, 2008, p. 169).
