Abstract

This article presents a review of seven national governments' online collections of adult literacy-related research. This study explored the type of learning associated with official web spaces by asking the following research questions: (1) What kind of research do these governments present on their websites? (2) How is the presentation organized? (3) What opportunities for learning do these spaces provide? Clear differences emerged in the type of research presented and in how it was organized. Sites varied in the way they presented opportunities to learn, which was suggestive of underlying differences in how the research base was being conceptualized.
