75 e-Learning Activities
This invaluable resource can help transform run-of-the-mill online courses into exciting, meaningful, and active e-learning experiences. 75 e-Learning Activities is filled with scores of e-learning activities and games that offer trainers and instructors a handbook for creating interactive and engaging online courses. Much like the activities and games used in traditional classroom training, these e-learning activities can be used to increase interactivity, engage learners, accomplish learning objectives, develop online relationships, promote active learning, and create learning communities. With many examples available on the CD-ROM for easy online transfer, the activities can help elaborate on course content through the use of online technologies such as chat rooms, email, or discussion boards.
The book's recipe approach makes it easy to include any of the e-learning activities into most any online course. Designed to be flexible, the book's activities can be used independently or in tandem throughout an online course. 75 e-Learning Activities also contains more than 80 tips and suggestions for increasing the interactivity in your online courses, a glossary of essential e-learning terms, and a list of useful online and text resources for instructors and trainers who want to create dynamic interactive training experiences.
Written by Ryan Watkins, an expert on e-learning and distance education, 75 e-Learning Activities also includes contributions from acclaimed trainers Mel Silberman and Steve Sugar.

What a disappointment. In my world an eLearning activity is something to engage the learner in an asynchronous eLearning course not a resource for a course taught online.
I have no use for this book at all.
It may be great for instructors teaching online instead of in the classroom but the title says something totally different.
It's my own fault. I should investigated more before buying it. But, now I'm stuck with something I don't have use for.
