Use of online learning environments became popular through the opportunities that internet technologies provide. However, most of instructors have only some assumptions and beliefs about teaching online in a lack of prior knowledge or experience. Transformative learning occurs when they critically reflect on and revise these, and change their actions. Transformative learning is essential for instructors especially in technology-affiliated learning environments. The study is designed as a qualitative case study. The purpose is analyzing and presenting instructors' transformational experiences in online learning environments. (C) 2010 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
