Here's what I chose as the most relevant articles and/or websites:
There appears to be quite a bit here plus some of the articles lead to other resources, a few of which are listed below.
One of the resources that looks to be worthwhile is http://www.tltgroup.org/flashlightP.htm Flashlight Program from the University of Melbourne site, the second one in the list above.
This article, Pisik, G. B, (1997). Is this course instructionally Sound? A guide to Evaluating Online Training Courses. Educational Technology, July-August 1997, 50-59 (ERIC #EJ547832), looks to have value but have to access through ERIC.
An offshoot of the last article in the above list yielded this intriguing article, http://www.learningcircuits.org/2007/0707karrer.html which addresses Web 2.0 elearning and shows a comparison of 3 generations of elearning.
