Overview

E-Learning has long been touted as the brave new frontier of education, offering fresh challenges to teachers, students and, indeed, the whole of the education system. Addressing this, Elearning: The Key Concepts is the perfect reference for anyone seeking to navigate the myriad of names, concepts and applications associated with this new era of teaching, training and learning.

Taking the reader from A to Z through a range of topics including blogging, course design, plagiarism, search engines and Virtual Learning Environments (VLEs), this timely work features:

  • full cross-referencing
  • a substantial introduction exploring the development of the field and putting modern-day challenges in context
  • extensive guides to further reading.

The only text of its kind to provide concise and user-friendly definitions of the crucial terms used in this growing field, this is a highly useful resource for online course co-ordinators, undergraduate students taking online courses, students on masters-level online learning courses, and trainers.
