Knowledge, Learning, Community

Tony Bates reviews the just-released open access Handbook of Open, Distance and Digital Education. He cites the editors in agreeing that "the notable strength of this handbook is in the diversity of perspectives presented by our international authors who have created a comprehensive knowledge base to examine the effects and issues of ODDE" but questions whether its reach will extend well beyond its specialized audience. I believe it will, not just because it's open access, but because individual papers will have much wider applicability than the volume as a whole. Bates mentions a few of papers he finds particularly appealing; I will just assume he hasn't read mine in detail yet. ;)
