Research in Distance Education: Methods and Results.
McIsaac, Marina Stock; And Others
This paper reports research in progress. The purpose of this study was to examine the growing variety of research emerging in distance education and to suggest a method for synthesizing the results. Over 60 articles, representing both quantitative and qualitative studies published in major journals during the past two years, have been abstracted and reviewed. Preliminary research categories have been determined and a meta-analytic model has been designed to synthesize the experimental and quasi-experimental data. The remaining qualitative studies will be subjected to a heuristic analysis to present a fuller picture of methods and results of research currently being done in distance education.
