Abrami, Philip C.; Bernard, Robert M.; Bures, Eva M.; Borokhovski, Eugene; Tamim, Rana M. – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2011
In a recent meta-analysis of distance and online learning, Bernard et al. (2009) quantitatively verified the importance of three types of interaction: among students, between the instructor and students, and between students and course content. In this paper we explore these findings further, discuss methodological issues in research and suggest…
