Abstract

Is there evidence for the effectiveness of e-Learning in the Higher Education sector? This paper offers an overview of theories of learning in instructional contexts and then lists some of the varied and diverse definitions of e-Learning. The question of the extent to which a learning philosophy is implicit (or even explicit) within each definition of e-Learning is raised. The development of a search strategy and the issues of inclusion and exclusion criteria in assessing the evidence for the effectiveness of e-Learning are briefly described. A modified form of a systematic review is offered as a methodology suitable to locate and evaluate the evidence needed.
