I always new this term came from somewhere, but didn't know where until I found http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpl/freeabs_all.jsp?arnumber=1028525 - this paper gives a great overview of what courseware engineering is all about. Essentially it is the use of software engineering methodologies in the development of courseware. The paper also gives a nice definition for courseware. A paper which predates this paper is a paper which was presented at IWALT 2000 by Uden, which presents a Courseware Engineering Methodology. This is interesting as it outlines the use of different models in the "engineering" of courseware.
