Evaluating Web-Based Learning and Instruction (WBLI): A Case Study and Framework for Evaluation.
Michalski, Greg V.
The purpose of this paper is to suggest an alternative approach to perform relevant and useful evaluations of Web-based learning and instruction (WBLI) that will accommodate performance and keep pace with the growing capabilities of the Internet. Discussion includes the advantages of WBLI, multimedia and streaming use in WBLI, building the foundation of WBLI capability, and a review of WBLI evaluation approaches. The paper focuses primarily on defining an evaluative framework that can accommodate a range of WBLI interventions specifically within a business environment by more deeply exploring learner needs, concerns, and expectations. A case study involving WBLI designed to assist the E-Service solutions group at Nortel Networks implement Time to Market (TTM) development principles is used to illustrate several aspects of the emergent framework. Contains 12 references. (Author/AEF)
