Three Volume Set

© 2017 | 1 408 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

Online education, both by for-profit institutions and within traditional universities, has seen recent tremendous growth and appeal - but online education has many aspects that are not well understood.  

 

The SAGE Encyclopedia of Online Education provides a thorough and engaging reference on all aspects of this field, from the theoretical dimensions of teaching online to the technological aspects of implementing online courses—with a central focus on the effective education of students.

 

Key topics explored through over 350 entries include:

 

·         Technology used in the online classroom

·         Institutions that have contributed to the growth of online education

·         Pedagogical basis and strategies of online education

·         Effectiveness and assessment

·         Different types of online education and best practices

·         The changing role of online education in the global education system

 

"This three-volume work edited by American history scholar Danver (Walden Univ.) focuses on the multifaceted relationship of various measures of effective student education to the technology supporting online education... This work covers basics very well; it also complements and updates much of the material presented in related works such as The SAGE Handbook of E-Learning Research, ed. by Richard Andrews and Caroline Haythornthwaite."
Summing Up: Recommended. All academic audiences; professionals/practitioners.
