The research on online teaching is a demanding field that requires an innovative point of view to support courses in this context. There are multiples approaches to design, implement or deliver online courses. Nevertheless, less attention has been paid to assist teachers in order to guide them to use technology-based environments in this kind of courses. This work proposes an approach to support the generation of teaching guidelines based on a conceptual framework that enables the representation and processing of the instructional and technological issues involved in an online course. The application of this approach will allow the instructor to define the instructional requirements of a specific learning setting and to map them with the features provided by a Virtual Learning Environment. This mapping process should facilitate the systematic generation of teaching guidelines based on matching both instructional and technological concepts.
