e-Learning, Online Learning, and Distance Learning Environments: Are They the Same?
Moore, Joi L.; Dickson-Deane, Camille; Galyen, Krista
Internet and Higher Education, v14 n2 p129-135 Mar 2011
It is not uncommon that researchers face difficulties when performing meaningful cross-study comparisons for research. Research associated with the distance learning realm can be even more difficult to use as there are different environments with a variety of characteristics. We implemented a mixed-method analysis of research articles to find out how they define the learning environment. In addition, we surveyed 43 persons and discovered that there was inconsistent use of terminology for different types of delivery modes. The results reveal that there are different expectations and perceptions of learning environment labels: distance learning, e-Learning, and online learning. (Contains 6 figures and 3 tables.)
