Florida Distance Learning Research Consortium
Welcome to the Florida Distance Learning Research Consortium. This tool has been created for the purpose of collecting, organizing, curating and communicating the important research in online learning happening throughout the State University System of Florida.
We invite researchers to sign-up for email updates as the repository develops. These email communications will include featured research in all facets of online learning, links to newly added research, details regarding upcoming webinars, and curated research aligned to user-specific areas of interest.
Our hope is that this research repository will inspire new research and serve to elevate the vital distance learning research of our great state.
