Delivering Learning on the Net: The Why, What & How of Online Education

Synopsis

Educators cannot ignore the net or its implications for their course or institution, but where to begin? Good Web-based education is complex, and does not occur in a vacuum. The educational, administrative and organizational aspects all need to be understood - in addition to a sound understanding and vision of the requirements of online technologies.Simple, straightforward and direct, this book will guide readers through each of these issues. This is not a book for those fixated by technology. Instead, it will show any educator, teacher, or indeed trainer, how to understand and develop effective online courses. It avoids reducing the issues of good Web-based education to a simplistic cook book approach: this is not possible for anything other than the most basic material. Rather, it clearly and authoritatively develops an understanding of the basic principles, and essential components of good online education.
