The latest advances in Internet and multimedia have increased the popularity of online learning environments. Although every new online learning environment (OLE) claims to have introduced one or more novelties, not every OLE is successful in creating a long and lasting impact in learners' knowledge. In this article, we have analyzed the recent research literature relevant to online and e-learning as well as computer based instruction with the purpose of identifying the desirable characteristics of an ideal new generation OLE. Ultimately, this research aims to serve as a guideline for the creators of the existing and novel OLE's for superior teaching and learning experiences.
