Assessment of Effectiveness of Web-based Training on Demand
A model that investigates the relationship between learner control and learning effectiveness under five dimensions: learning performance, learner satisfaction, accumulation of learning experience, document navigation, and problem solving is used.
The Impact of Learner Control on E-Learning Effectiveness: Towards a Theoretical Model
A conceptual framework is derived as a reference model, which is based on cognitive and motivational learning theories, which reveals how different individual characteristics, as well as the characteristics of the course and learning environment moderate the impact of learner control on learning effectiveness.
An Experimental Study on Situated and Dynamic Learning Assessment (SDLA) Environment
The study finds that when both groups of Taiwanese students used Internet based learning, those that utilized the situated and dynamic learning assessment environment showed a statistically significant higher achievement score than those using only the current online learning environment.

Abstract The transition to cognitive theories and assumptions about learning which began in psychology a quarter of a century ago are slowly being implemented in the practice of educational
Students’ Distress with a Web-based Distance Education Course: An Ethnographic Study of Participants' Experiences
Understanding of the instructional design issues, instructor and student preparation, and communication practices that are needed to improve web-based distance education courses are enhanced.
Many advocates of computer-mediated distance education emphasize its positive aspects and understate the kinds of communicative and technical capabilities and work required by students and faculty.

The effects of cognitive style and knowledge structure on performance using a hypermedia learning system
A relationship exists between the structuring of the knowledge domain, as reflected by the hypermedia software, and positive learning performance, and this relationship is also extended to the effective use of higher-order cognitive skills.
Learning Theory and the Study of Instruction
Abstract : This article examines the articulation of learning theory that is emerging from studies that take principled approaches to the design of instruction of complex forms of knowledge and
Application of Social Cognitive Theory to Training for Computer Skills
Self-efficacy exerted a strong influence on performance in both models, and behavior modeling was found to be more effective than the traditional method for training in Lotus 1-2-3, resulting in higher self- efficacy and higher performance.
Cognitive Apprenticeship and Instructional Technology
Abstract : In earlier times, practically everything was taught by apprenticeship: growing crops, running trades, administering governments. Schools are a recent invention that use many fewer teaching
