Evaluation of Evidence-Based Practices in Online Learning: A Meta-Analysis and Review of Online Learning Studies - Findings presented in this report are derived from a systematic search for empirical studies of the effectiveness of online learning and a meta-analysis of those studies from which effect sizes that contrasted online and face-to-face instruction could be extracted or estimated. Four questions drove the research: (1) How does the effectiveness of online learning versus face-to-face instruction compare? (2) Does supplementing face-to-face instruction with online learning enhance learning? (3) What practices produced more effective online learning? (4) What conditions influence the effectivness of online learning? (Center for Technology in Learning, U.S. Department of Education, May 2009)...
