From the Publisher“Palloff and Pratt clearly explain the tasks and functions involved when an instructor moves from face-to-face to the online environment. These include the ability to facilitate education, establish a friendly environment, set an agenda, pace the course, and become comfortable and proficient with the technology. Once established, these function as the groundwork for success.
This book is particularly valuable for educators with minimal knowledge of online learning… The authors have included everything needed to build a strong, successful online course.”
(Adult Learning Magazine Volume 19, Numbers 1&2, Winter and Spring 2008)
" . . .the authors' central premise is that a collaborative learning community is the best vehicle for distance education." (Journal of Continuing Higher Education, Fall 2007)
"There will be a range of 'ah ha' moments for the reader working with students in building online learning communities." (NACADA, Nov 20, 2007)
