Abstract

This chapter introduces a descriptive model of Web-based learning called The Integrated Learning Model (ILM). The ILM is a data-driven idea, conceptualized from three principle components “knowledge acquisition,” “practice effects,” and “assessment,” and refined with exploratory factor analysis. The Integrated Learning Model (ILM) has at its heart three powerful theoretical concepts that currently enjoy widespread recognition in the educational literature. Structural Equation Modeling was then applied to determine the model fit, and parameter loadings to explain the learning construct.
