Connecting with E-learning

About the Series

e-Learning is rapidly becoming a key component of campus-based education as well as a cornerstone of distance learning. However, it remains challenging for most teachers in higher and further education. There are four major reasons for this:

  • Learners increasingly expect effective application of technologies; this can be intimidating to teachers/lecturers who are novices at using these technologies themselves.
  • Already under pressure for time, teachers need to understand how to design an appropriate blend of online and offline, otherwise their learners may end up working unproductively and unhappily.
  • Courses need to be sustainable, so that learning materials can be easily generated, stored, retrieved and repurposed.
  • Teachers/lecturers are understandably uncertain about how to invest their time and effort in a fast-moving field.

This exciting series provides relevant guides for both newcomers to teaching in higher and further education and experienced teachers/lecturers developing their practice online. With practical, accessible advice that draws on recent research and the experiences of expert practitioners, each book is relevant to teachers and lecturers worldwide.
