Abstract

This paper reviews the literature on the learning effectiveness of asynchronous online environments. It attempts to look beyond the commonly accepted findings of no significant differences in learning outcomes between online and traditional courses to examine that literature in terms of forms of interactivity, exploring learner interactions with course content, instructors, and classmates in online course environments. More recent notions of interactions with computer and course interfaces and virtual interaction are also briefly examined. It concludes with a summary of what the research tells us and its implications for course development and facilitation.
