Book Description:
This two-volume book series on online education consists of a current collection of research contributed by authors from different nations in different disciplines. The book series takes a global perspective, examining the skills needed for online education and looking to see how people around the world view the concepts and components that make up an online learning environment. Most of the collections are research-based practices that have been done through the years. Volume Two shares some of the experiences that higher education faculty and administrators have explored or are currently exploring to take advantage of technology-enabled online learning, presents new approaches for implementing and evaluating these practices, and describes the unique learning opportunity brought by online education technologies. It represents a compendium of current practices and potentials on how to best manage and develop online distance courses and programs. (Imprint: Nova)
