There has been a rapid expansion of online teaching and learning - over 10 million students now study online, and millions more use educational multimedia products and services from commercial and broadcasting organizations. However, in the rush to get online teachers, educators and developers often complain about the lack of solid theory underpinning the end materials. This book is the first to present a wide range of experience and research findings from leading practitioners and organizations around the world and will be invaluable for researchers, developers and teachers, as well as anyone with a critical interest in developing successful online teaching and learning.
