Making the Move to eLearning proposes a radical truth—that online education, when taught using the methodology perfected by successful veterans of distance learning, surpasses traditional face-to-face teaching and learning. The key is for online educators to learn just what those successful methods are and how to emulate them in their own virtual courses. Making the Move to eLearning is the textbook for new and veteran online teachers who want to learn or refine their online facilitation skills.

Phyl Burger
Making the Move to eLearning is a must read for all who teach. As a career and leadership coach this book provides expertise not only as best practices for teaching, but affirms our teacher leader responsibilities as genuine, empathic responders as well.
Sheila Bartle
Anyone who wants to both succeed and enjoy themselves in this non-traditional, creative, dynamic, asynchronous world will dog-ear page after page of Lehmann and Chamberlin's book. As a traditional educator who had to quickly and intuitively adapt to my online classroom and its students as well as coach my faculty colleagues, I'm very grateful now for a book I wish I'd had five years ago!
Joan Vandervelde
This is the book to read if you are keen to learn how to teach online but aren't quite sure where to start or how to adapt your teaching strategies. Novice and veteran online instructors will appreciate the difference this book can make in their teaching. Making the Move to eLearning is an essential read for those who wish to understand how to deal with time management and student motivation issues and how to improve their day-to-day facilitation and assessment strategies when teaching an online class.
