"This book represents a milestone in bringing together these two concepts - andragogy and Internet learning. Others have made suggestions about what is needed for bringing them together, but Dr. Isenberg has conducted the research and knows what is needed . This is the only book I know that delivers such in-depth information and research actually applying andragogy to Internet learning." - Professor John Henschke, University of Missouri

In this comprehensive study, Susan Isenberg provides the most rigorous account and investigation of online adult learning ever conducted.

Utilizing an actual internet-based destination site called Virtual Health Coach, this study uses interpretive inquiry methods to assess how adults learn online and identifies thirteen critical components of andragogical principles to internet learning.

This book is also an outstanding example of a real life online case study method.

The rich results and method make Applying Andragogical Principles to Internet Learning a required addition to any research library in education.

What People Are Saying

Jost Reischmann
"This book deals with a topic important today, even more tomorrow. The increasing number of Internet learning offerings in various ways more and more raises the question of the quality and learner-friendliness of these offerings. As the author states: " . . . applying andragogical principles to Internet learning describes a promising new approach to Internet learning at a time when a better or different idea seems to be sorely needed" (Isenberg, 2007, p. xxxv). In this given situation the book of Susan Isenberg is an important contribution to an important task."--(Prof. Dr. Jost Reischmann, Bamberg University Germany, Chair of Andragogy)
Grey Edwards Jr.
"Dr. Isenberg is one of the only educators and authors to merge andragogical principles with internet learning and technology. As a military educator, I was pleased to see Dr. Isenberg, in her research, interfacing with an Air Force Lieutenant Colonel and the in depth interview associated with the project. This book helps fill the gap between research of adult learning practices and recent technology. As the President of the American Association of Adult and Continuing Education (AAACE), I strongly recommend and support this timely book of Dr. Susan Isenberg which moves us further toward the goal of developing protocol integrating theory and practice of adult internet learning. I highly encourage the author to submit her book for the Imogene Okes Award for Outstanding Research in Adult Education, presented by the American Association of Adult and Continuing Education at the annual conference. Dr. Isenberg makes a significant contribution to our field with the research published in "Applying Andragogical Principles to Internet Learning" and I look forward to seeing more from this bright and knowledgeable educator in the future."--(Grey Edwards Jr., Ed. D., President, AAACE)
