Yesterday I mentioned the Evidence-Based Practice Increases Success in Online Education, According to Research Presented in January Issue of Sloan-C’s JALN, well today I wanted to post an item that showed up in my inbox on Friday.  Note that this is not K-12 specific, but likely of interest all the same.
