New Verse or the Same Old Chorus?: Looking Holistically at Distance Education Research
Bray, Nathaniel J.; Harris, Michael S.; Major, Claire
Research in Higher Education, v48 n7 p889-908 Nov 2007
While there continues to be a proliferation in the number of studies conducted on various aspects of distance education, we are often left with little understanding of the holistic planning and effects of it. This paper draws lessons learned from the literature on distance education over the past five years. This review did not seek to be exhaustive in presenting the findings of every study, but instead focuses on specific instruction we can take from past research at the institutional, faculty, and student levels.
