The explosion of online educational resources, more powerful learning platforms, learner analytics, and MOOCs is changing higher education. Unfortunately, research on the effectiveness of different forms of online and blended instruction and on how best to implement new technology-based approaches has not kept pace. SRI's evaluation of the first wave of the NGLC initiative examined implementation and student outcomes for 29 projects. Drawing both on these findings and on other recent research, this presentation will describe the next-generation learning technology landscape, what we know about student outcomes obtained with different approaches, and key implementation issues and facilitators.
