Theories and Frameworks for Online Education: Seeking an Integrated Model
Picciano, Anthony G.
Online Learning, v21 n3 p166-190 2017
This article examines theoretical frameworks and models that focus on the pedagogical aspects of online education. After a review of learning theory as applied to online education, a proposal for an integrated "Multimodal Model for Online Education" is provided based on pedagogical purpose. The model attempts to integrate the work of several other major theorists and model builders such as Anderson (2011). [This article is adapted from a chapter in a forthcoming book by the author, tentatively entitled "Online Education: Theory and Practice," available in 2018 from Routledge/Taylor & Francis, Publishers.]
