This paper makes a case for teaching without a text. It covers problems commonly associated with the use of texts, outlines a process for developing courses without textbooks, uses the authorís E-Commerce course as an example of applying the process to a course, and reports the preliminary results of using this process in terms of both student performance and student reaction to working without a text. Suggestions are made regarding how others may proceed to employ this strategy in their own courses.

Keywords: textbooks, course design, situational factors, student learning goals, feedback and assessment, teaching and learning activities, integration
