This paper examines what the experts are listing as advantages and disadvantages of a web-based training course. The paper also takes a look at the effectiveness and feasibility as well as the ethical issues facing a web-based training course. This is accomplished by first finding out what the current experts are saying on the subject. The second step was to survey the instructors, students and administrators. All this information was reviewed and discussed to determine if developing a web-based CAD (computer aided design) training course is feasible, and to determine if there are any ethical issues.
