Experimental Evidence for e-Learning: Features for Practitioners

OPWL Webinar

Boise State OPWL webinar presented by Ruth Clark

In this session, Ruth Clark will review and identify effective features and drawbacks of experimental studies in e-learning using a recent report from Richard Mayer and his associates. When reading experimental
research reports, factors related to the experimental subjects, the treatments, the outcome measures along with the experimental design all relate to the transferability of the results to your e-learning design principles. The gradual accumulation of related evidence leads to the principles reviewed in e-Learning and the Science of Instruction.
