There has been an unprecedented surge in the number of web related tools used for course delivery. This paper examined the reasons for students to go to course dedicated websites and the impact these sites have on classroom attendance. An empirical assessment shows that course dedicated websites enhance learning and do not tempt students to turn away from the classroom. A software program called Zlocker which gives students and teachers an opportunity to share a locker in cyberspace was incorporated in the courses that were examined in this study.
