Evaluating Online Instruction: Adapting a Training Model to E-Learning in Higher Education.
Hallett, Karen; Essex, Christopher
This paper presents a model for the evaluation of postsecondary online distance education courses and programs. To better address the unique nature and audience for these courses and programs, and the related institutional needs for assessing their success or failure, the focus is on a model from corporate training that provides a comprehensive, multi-level evaluation of a distance course or program. This model is based on Kirkpatrick's (1975) levels of evaluation. A general description is provided of how this model can be implemented via online means to provide the assessment information required by postsecondary institutions. (Contains 12 references.)
