New technologies coupled with reduced training budgets have spurred interest in advanced distance and distributed learning (ADDL) environments. ADDL environments offer the potential to deliver education and training faster and more efficiently than previously possible. Pedagogically, they can provide authentic and customized training to support a wide range of progressively complex learning and performing needs. Little research has established how trainees should be supported in systems where live instructors are unavailable—especially in asynchronous systems. It is critical to examine the relationships between learning and use of on-line scaffolds, the relationships they purport to improve as well as how they contribute to the development of more independent learners. We present an empirically-based framework that allows researchers to derive fundamental knowledge regarding scaffolding ADDL performance.
