Reviews

'The volume reports a variety of experiences with online education and as such comprises a good survey of current thinking in this evolving field.' - Open Learning


.. . The writers also share a commitment to increasing learners' control over their own learning. They stress that pedagogy, not technology, provides for learning. The absence of pedagogical theory in the literature of online learning is a weakness these writers seek to correct. While many of the practitioners discuss university-based programs, a provocative article by Dennis Schlais and Richard Davis ( California State Univ. at Chico) reviews the development of a global learning network for which the creators developed a non-university, non-profit organization to try to, solve administrative and logistical issues. Throughout, the authors advocate pushing back boundaries and blurring distinctions between students and faculty, university and society, nations and cultures, and disciplines. Recommended for graduate, research and professional collections. -- CHOICE
