Theory and Practice of Online Learning

Terry Anderson, Theory, Practice of Online Learning, Feb 23, 2004
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Just released and already getting wide play is this open access volume of essays released by Athabsca University. Theorists looking for cutting edge research will be disappointed, but that is neither the intent nor the outcome of this volume. Instead, what the editors offer is an accessible, readable, practical and comprehensive introduction to the field of online learning, a book that would make an outstanding introductory text, acquainting readers with the major issues, writers and schools of thought in the field, which is in its own right a major contribution. The bulk of today's issue of OLDaily is devoted to this work.CRLF
