The World Wide Web has had a significant impact on learning and teaching since it was created. Forty percent of college courses now list Web resources in the syllabus, and more than a quarter have their own Web page. This book draws from a broad range of psychological theory and research to create an "intra-disciplinary" perspective on Web-based learning and teaching. It starts with the psychology of the learner and considers how best to fit Web technology to the student. Thus it includes a wide range of materials from the perception of moving graphics to how strangers can create "virtual communities of learners." The book considers many Internet technologies, but focuses on the World Wide Web and new "hybrid" technologies that integrate the Web with other communication technologies. This book will be indispensable to psychologists and educational researchers interested in learning. Teachers and trainers who use the Web in their teaching will find this an especially useful compilation of relevant psychological theory and research. Imperative for the researcher, this book is nonetheless accessible to students.
