Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Online Learning: Concepts, Strategies, and Application is based on the principles of learning as a social process. It details a journey from theory to practice, informing the design of powerful and engaging online learning environments. A consistent theme in this book is the interaction between pedagogical models, instructional strategies, and learning technologies. This process is embedded in a flexible, yet systematic and integrative instructional design framework that enables the reader to envision, plan for, and implement customized instructional designs for online learning.
