This project is the initial phase of a longer-term effort to evaluate the effectiveness of HRSA's many efforts to disseminate information and provide education and training through various distance learning techniques. To inform this eventual assessment, this project will: (1) provide a review of relevant literature on the relative effectiveness of different distance learning approaches; (2) catalogue HRSA's dissemination and distance learning programmatic efforts to determine the methods and purposes for which they are used; (3) examine the data currently being collected on these efforts and the utility of those data; (4) determine additional data and analytical needs; and (5) recommend designs for an evaluative study.
