During the past three decades, hundreds of research studies have been conducted to investigate interactive learning in a variety of forms ranging from the earliest days of mainframe-based computer-assisted instruction to contemporary multimedia learning environments accessible via the World Wide Web. In light of this body of research, some researchers believe that we are on the verge of developing a true instructional science whereas others conclude that we simply cannot pile up generalizations fast enough to adapt our interactive designs to the myriad variables inherent in human learning. In this paper, I summarize what we know and what we don't know about interactive learning, describe the strengths and weaknesses of various approaches to interactive learning research, and conclude by proposing a new developmental research agenda for the first decade of the new millennium.
