Abstract

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. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
