Previous research on delivery modes in distance education and their correlation to student achievement outcomes has shown that students learn better via computer-based communication than face-to-face instruction . . One explanation for this phenomenon is that the students must take more responsibility for, and be more active in, the learning process. This study looks at how the media used in one aspect of distance education, on-line discussion, can affect the learning outcomes for students involved in distance learning activities. On-line discussion within any learning environment can provide the opportunity for students to engage in thoughtful, content-based conversations about the topic under study, which may result in deeper understanding and greater learning gains. A content analysis of student discussion in listserv-based (electronic-mail) discussion, web-based threaded discussion, and chat discussion will be presented.
