The first half of this volume describes the computer and web technologies that enable online education, the students who use e-learning technologies, and the different e-learning environments and communities. The focus of the second half switches to professional and academic applications of e-learning, pedagogical designs, and case studies. Topics of the 29 papers include the semantic web and the power of collective intelligence, strategies for providing formative feedback to maximize learner satisfaction, faculty use and perceptions of Web 2.0 in higher education, and a constructivist model applied to MBA course design.
