article proposes a framework for evaluating the effectiveness of academic
courses delivered over the Internet or Internet-based Distance Education
(IDE). It first examines the standards set for teaching in the traditional
face-to-face setting; it then reviews experiments that examined whether
those same standards can be applied to IDE. Finally, it offers a series of
measures that can be applied to determine the degree of success resulting
from IDE. This article draws upon theoretical and empirical work in
distance education, learning, instructional design, information technology,
and empirical studies. The intended results are to enable a more informed
evaluation of IDE and to establish a series of guidelines for effectively
utilizing this media.
