Book Description

Blended and online learning skills are rapidly becoming essential for effective teaching and learning in universities and colleges. Covering theory where useful but maintaining an emphasis on practice, this book provides teachers and lecturers with an accessible introduction to e-learning.

Beginning by exploring the meaning of 'e-learning', it supports tutors in identifying how they plan to use technology to support courses that blend online and face-to-face interactions. Illustrated by a range of case of studies, the book covers:

  • designing quality, appropriate effective and online learning

  • efficient and sustainable e-learning activity

  • providing appropriate feedback to learners

  • devising student activities and sourcing learning resources

  • managing online and offline interactions

Packed with practical advice and ideas, this book provides the core skills and knowledge that teachers in HE and FE need when starting out and further developing their teaching course design for blended and online learning.

Product Description


'This book is a very readable introduction to e-learning and its role within blended learning. It could be recommended to a tutor new to e-learning or an experienced practitioner - both will find much of interest here, together with references to a wealth of recent research.' - ESCalate, Higher Education Academy

"Littlejohn and Pegler have produced an interesting addition to the e-learning series. The notion of planning for blended e-learning is an important one and is supported here with well reasoned arguments and examples." British Journal of Educational Technology, Vol 39, No. 4, 2008.

"The authors have discussed in depth every element of e-learning….Given the complexity of the material, the authors do a commendable job of pulling together the many strands of BEL in an accessible tone." – Technical Communication, Volume 55, Number 3, August 2008

4.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive, sensible and open-minded 17 Mar. 2009
The authors of the book have clearly got a comprehensive experience of e-learning. They present a comprehensive view of the field including both traditional approach and the one which is more interactive, social and focused on a student. The theory, which comprises the influence of modern media blend on teaching/learning, is richly illustrated by various examples of e-learning courses.

5.0 out of 5 stars eLearning 7 Aug. 2009
I think I actually bought this as part of my MA in Online & Distance Education... A decent book, very useful in traditional education - where you might be trying out some new innovations and wondering how the heck you can get them into the curriculum without people kicking up a fuss.
Let's face it - most institutions are going to be using a blended learning approach unless you are working somewhere like the Open University.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential insights on e-learning 5 April 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
If the OU MAODE (Masters in Open and Distance Education) had set books this would be one of them. In one module Chris was the module chair - as here she is informed, engaged and passionate about e-learning.
