Overview

This is the thoroughly revised second edition of one of the first books to provide an overview of how key aspects of university life - such as teaching, academic research, administration, management and course design - are being affected by digital and web-enabled technologies. More than three-quarters of the material has been revised and updated. Still further, three new chapters now address the following aspects: the virtual classroom, vicarious learning, and educational metadata. The main body of the text focuses on asynchronous collaboration by examining the following four key topics: principles, experiences, evaluation, and benefits. A timely and up-most important guide to all aspects of modern university education in the digital age.
