    As online education becomes more familiar, so the reality of using it in teaching and learning has moved beyond the realm of the specialist. Pedagogy and best practice
    Delivering Learning on the Net explores the reality of online education today. Martin Weller chaired the groundbreaking Open University course You, Your computer and the Net, which is now the largest for-credit online course in Europe.

    *the Net and its relation to education;
    *developing and implementing online courses;
    *the key issues surrounding online education.
    Teachers, trainers, technologists, administrators and decision-makers working in higher and further education will all find much of value in this book.
