The paper seeks to explore and critically evaluate extant research on effective e-learning and to ask whether it is aligned to what we know about good teaching. Several online evaluation instruments are investigated by examining the criteria they apply in assessment of the student experience of e-learning. A related aspect to be explored is the application of current research and theory underpinning effective teaching and learning online to the design of evaluation instruments. The question asked is whether commonly used criteria are aligned with state of the art theoretical knowledge about teaching and learning. It is proposed that more learner–centred and constructivist evaluation instruments are needed that reflect what we know about learning online.
