I wasn’t really sure what I would want to research in distance education, but then I began thinking about how many different ways a course can be set up. So, I would want to research what is the most effective set-up for a distance learning course? Would it be using something like blackboard, secondlife, blogs, etc. I would study this by having students participate in all three settings and then compare their achievement, thoughts, and so on.
