A Doodyís Core Title!

ì[This book] addresses issues that cut across a wide range of best practices and the effect of technology on learning. [It includes] sound principles, new and creative ideas, [and] many implications for future research. What can and cannot be taught online? How are faculty best assisted in learning a new role? Who are the students in this geographically and culturally diverse learning community?... I know that you will enjoy this book because it combines current practices and research with building a foundation of knowledge that takes us into the future.î
