deLeon, Linda; Killian, Jerri
Journal of Public Affairs Education, v6 n1 p5-18 Jan 2000
Moving beyond question of whether on-line education is beneficial or harmful, explores conditions under which one or another of six instructional methods lecture, collaborative learning, experiential learning, learning contracts, televised courses, and Web-based learning work best. Finds specific methods more appropriate for some subject matters, some learners, some instructors, and concludes that a variety of teaching methods optimizes opportunities for learning. (DB)
