'This publication is exactly what it claims to be: a no-nonsense all-inclusive overview of distance learning. It is an eclectic review of everything connected with distance learning: definitions of terms, surveys of related concepts and issues, history, research, explanations of the technology, direction on interacting with the video technology when conducting a lesson, planning and organising lessons of greater or lesser interactivity, a glossary of terms related to distance learning, and even advice on overcoming fear of the technology. All this in 160 pages!'- British Journal Educational TechnologyDistance Learning is an ideal introduction to the world of new educational technologies. Filled with case studies, and built on an intuitive set of 'How Do I ...' questions, it provides a strong foundation for teachers who need to know more about open and distance learning, across any academic discipline.
