In technology-based learning (TBL), implementation is the presentation of the learning experiences to the participants utilizing the appropriate media. An evaluation is integral to the growth of an academic institution. It is a measure by which decisions are made and direction is focused. The importance of evaluating such aspects of TBL is unique in comparison to traditional means. TBL is usually the physical separation between learner and instructor, where the majority of learning by the student takes place independently (Bates, 1995). For this reason, the vehicles in which the TBL is delivered must be supportive and suitable for individual needs. In this paper, literatures on implementation and evaluation will be reviewed and a concept map for understanding the implementation and evaluation of TBL will be structured.
