With the advent of the Internet, several alternative educational paradigms have emerged. Although much has been written to support distance learning and collaborative learning, contextualizing research for the residential, liberal arts college requires first-hand experience. With this premise, several studies were funded by Saint Michaelís College to explore the appropriateness of e-learning paradigms in the context of one particular residential environment. Empirical data is presented along with anecdotal and subjective observations. Three learning paradigms are investigated in this paper: pure-distance, partial-distance, and collaborative learning.

Keywords: distance learning, collaborative learning, asynchronous learning, information systems curricula
