Description

The number of students taking online courses continues to grow each year. Despite the growth, a large percentage of faculties still don’t accept the value of online learning.

Online educators find themselves in exciting times where they continue advancing the dialogue about online learning, beyond the discussions of “is it as good as face-to-face instruction?” to more nuanced issues such as some of the various benefits, challenges, and misconceptions that go along with learning online.

The purpose of this book is to address the various benefits, challenges, and misconceptions that coincide with online teaching and learning. The audience includes anyone with an interest in online learning, whether they are researchers, designers, instructors, or trainers. This book is organized into several themes that are current and emerging in the field of online learning, including student and instructor supports, instructional approaches, current trends and emerging technologies, reaching new audiences, and planning for the online learning environment.
