    Abstract

    Recent developments in technology and access have offered the opportunity to improve online learning environments through increased communication, interactivity among participants, and incorporation of pedagogical models to evaluate the quality of learning. Resulting advantages of the different features for the distributed online learning environment have included: access to and from geographically isolated communities, multiple and collaborative participation among them, convenience of synchronous/ asynchronous communication, interaction with and among individuals from diverse cultures, and ability to focus on participants' ideas, without knowledge of age, race, gender or background. We will focus on these features and discuss our research in enhancing and maintaining learning effectiveness using technology in online distributed learning environment.
