Meta-analysis and systematic review of Internet-based learning in the health professions: what does the evidence say regarding web-based education?

The increasing use of Internet-based learning in health professions education may be informed by a timely, comprehensive synthesis of evidence of effectiveness. This presentation will outline our research summarizing the effect of Internet-based instruction for health professions learners compared with no intervention and with non-Internet interventions. A very rigorous review and meta-analysis method was used to identify, select, and abstract information from the literature including characteristics of learners, learning setting, and intervention (including level of interactivity, practice exercises, online discussion, and duration). 

In this presentation I will review the results for the 201 studies that were reviewed, including satisfaction, knowledge outcomes, skills, learner behaviours and patient effects for both no-intervention studies and media comparative studies. A summary of what the evidence suggests in terms of most effective instructional design variations in Internet-based learning will also be considered.
