A Framework for Design and Evaluation of Internet-Based Distance Learning Courses Phase One--Framework Justification, Design and Evaluation
Baker, Russell K.
Online Journal of Distance Learning Administration, v6 n2 Sum 2003
Defined in its most basic form, distance learning occurs when the student and the instructor are logistically separated. The purpose of this paper is to propose a framework for the development and evaluation of online distance learning courses, based on integrating an adaptation of Tyler's principles within the levels of cognitive learning in Bloom's Taxonomy. The methodologies for delivery of course materials and evaluation of outcomes specific to online distance learning are discussed. Examples are suggested to achieve each learning level objective. The framework will then be functionally evaluated by applying it to a currently available online course.
