How Can Evaluation Get Us to the Heart of Learning in the Electronic Age?
Wise, Alicia
This paper discusses the evaluation of electronic resources. The first section addresses the importance of a clear policy framework, including the goals of a survey on higher education research and policy issues concerning online education, instructional technology, and distance learning. The second section discusses the importance of a robust methods framework. This section describes the following four strands of a three-year project in the United Kingdom with the purpose of developing a national user behavior monitoring and evaluation framework: a general survey of end users of all electronic information services; a real time survey of the use of JISC (Joint Information Systems Committee)-funded services; a general survey of provision; and a qualitative longitudinal monitoring of use. Key issues highlighted by the project are summarized. (Contains 22 references.) (MES)
