  • "Computers replace teachers in the classroom?'"
  • "E-learning is less effective than classroom teaching."
  • "Teaching online is less interactive than classroom instruction."

Many concerns exist about e-learning and other forms of technology-based learning, but what does the evidence and other instructors’ experience actually say? This session explores some of the most common concerns about e-learning and provides evidence and examples to address these concerns.
