E-learning has evolved into an effective learning tool that complements traditional classroom learning. As a key element in e-learning, the provision of e-courses is essential to the learning effectiveness. This paper reports a pilot study on the pedagogy-driven approach to e-course development, where some critical success factors are identified. First, the appropriate use of information and communication technologies on content design is of utmost importance in order for an e-course to be useful to learners. Second, e-courses should be developed in order to meet the teaching and learning needs, whilst over-emphasis of technologies may somewhat undermine the needs. Third, effective e-course development should be the concerted efforts of both academic staff and IT staff. These would be illustrated and discussed.
