Abstract

The recent work of Sitzmann et al. (2006) attempted to meta-analyze the research literature summarizing the differences in outcomes from traditional and web-based instructional methods. Unfortunately, a number of conceptual challenges with Sitzmann et al.’s work make their results difficult to interpret, both academically and in practice. To investigate these concerns, a new meta-analysis was conducted on the same research literature analyzed by Sitzmann et al. It was found that pre-training differences were larger than post-training differences, suggesting that Sitzmann et al’s work on post-training differences alone may be misleading.
