Going Online : Perspectives on Digital Learning (Hardcover) (Robert Ubell)
about this item
In The Practice of eLearning, one of our most respected online learning leaders offers insights into what elearning is, how it works, where it came from and where it may be headed. Robert Ubell reaches back to the days when distance learning was practiced by mail in correspondence schools, and then leads the reader on a tour of what goes onbehind the screen, touching on a wide array of topics along the way, including copyright law in the digital age, elearning program leadership, and student experiences online. Ubell makes the point that it is not technology alone but rather the unconventional pedagogies supported by technological innovations that are truly disrupting today's classrooms. He argues that innovations introduced online—principally peer-to-peer, collaborative learning—offer significantly increased learning opportunities across all age groups and educational sectors. This impressive collection, drawn from Ubell's decades of experience as an elearning leader, presents a powerful case for embracing online learning for its transformational potential.
