Evaluation of Evidence-Based Practices in Online Learning
"A systematic search of the research literature from 1996 through July 2008 identified more than a thousand empirical studies of online learning. Analysts screened these studies to find those that (a) contrasted an online to a face-to-face condition, (b) measured student learning outcomes, (c) used a rigorous research design, and (d) provided adequate information to calculate an effect size. As a result of this screening, 51 independent effects were identified (...) Analysts noted that these blended conditions often included additional learning time and instructional elements not received by students in control conditions."

To make sure your mistakes are coupled with support and feedback that will actually help learners, follow these tips."Mais sugestões:
Becoming a Rapid E-Learning Pro
"One of the great benefits of rapid e-learning is it lets you create e-learning courses much faster and easier than ever before. However, going faster and making your job easier are not the only factors.
While many e-learning developers do a good job focusing their attention on the design process, they often neglect the real needs of the organization, customers, and learner. This means that the course might not deliver the results you want it to.
As a rapid e-learning pro, your job is to produce meaningful business results. You do this by balancing the needs of everyone involved--the organization, the customer, and the learner—by leveraging e-learning technology."

Supporting Distance Learners via Moodle Discussion Forums
"The fundamental reason for using discussion forums is that they offer the potential to bridge the distance between student and tutor and between students themselves in distance learning courses. Realising that potential, however, places the tutor in a central role, particularly in the early stages of a course as students learn to negotiate the new learning environment as well as the subject content. A second important argument for the use of discussion forums is that writing – online discussion is a written form of communication - aids thinking and reflection"
