Overview

This book is about using the Internet as a teaching tool. It starts with the psychology of the learner and looks at how best to fit technology to the student, rather than the other way around. The authors include leading authorities in many areas of psychology, and the book takes a broad look at learners as people. Thus, it includes a wide range of materials from how the eye "reads" moving graphs on a Web page to how people who have never met face-to-face can interact on the Internet and create "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 communications technologies. This book is essential to researchers is psychology and education who are interested in learning. It is also used in college and graduate courses in departments of psychology and educational psychology. Teachers and trainers at any level who are using technology in their teaching (or thinking about it) find this book very useful.

Deals with the application of psychological theory and research to the development and assessment of learning resources on the web. The 12 chapters explore web-based learning and demands on the learner, the psychology of the learner, psychologically powerful dimensions of the web, and online research. For example, learning styles, the interaction between individual characteristics and technologies, and issues of anonymity and identity in cyberspace are some of the dimensions of the learning context considered.
