About the Series

Essentials of Online Learning series

This highly practical, easily-applied series of professional guides provides:

  • Standards: a clearly outlined set of standards are at the core of each individual book
  • Step-by-step learning: the development process progressively builds upon itself as you move through each book, making even complex concepts easy to understand regardless of your technological background or content-area expertise
  • Emphasis on design: the series emphasizes strong visual, pedagogical, and organizational design
  • Numerous examples: screenshots, video clips, and other "real-world" examples are utilized heavily throughout the books and companion websites
  • Voices of practitioners: the experiences of professionals working "in the field" are provided in their own words
  • Companion websites: each book in the series will have its own companion website which will link to the continuously updated series hub site

Online education still evokes a good deal of frustration, negativity, and wariness in teachers and learners.  However, the online learning experience can be at least as satisfying and engaging as the face-to-face learning experience if designed properly. Essentials of Online Learning provides readers with the knowledge and skills necessary to be a great online teacher.
