Web-based teaching and learner control: a research review


Computers & Education Volume 37, Number 3, ISSN 0360-1315 Publisher: Elsevier Ltd


The premise of this paper is that the effectiveness of web in contributing to learning will be a function of web-model alignment and the appropriateness of the model to a particular learning situation. We begin with a discussion of the most commonly advocated models of learning. Then we review the research evidence on learner control in a web-based teaching environment and the conditions under which it can most effectively facilitate rather than impede learning. Future research directions are discussed as well.
