'Online learning is growing rapidly as a discipline and in terms of its influence on education and training. Many activities that seemed impossible a decade ago - such as person to person online video - are now common place. The last 5 years have produced dramatic change in how individuals interact with each other and with information. This publication provides among the best theorizing, research, and implementation on online learning. Those who are new to technology in learning will find it a wonderful starting point. Those with extensive experience in online learning will find it to be an excellent foundation to revisit' - George Siemens, Athabasca University, Canada
