This book is fine if all you want is a general introduction to the field of e-learning. It's broken down into a number (17) of papers on e-learning - so it's easy reading. Although it could be a lot easier to read if it wasn't littered with clunky English. The problem is that it skirts around the issues. There are no solutions in this book - only questions. I got the distinct feeling that all of the authors were starting out in this new field. But in spite of this, it's OK and certainly touches on all of the issues surrounding online learning. It's just a pity that the authors didn't have more real-life experience to draw on.

I like books that claim to be instructive to tell me . . if you do this, you will get this % result. This book doesn't do that; it uses a lot of words though, especially "pedagogy, pedagogical, pedagogies". The title of Chapter 7 is "Finding the instructor in post-secondary online learning: pedagogical, social, managerial and technological locations". I think this means 'The roles of the on-line tutor in Higher Education' but I'm not sure. I'm possibly overly cynical about educational literature, especially pertaining to HE, and I'm sure there are some useful hints and tips in this (apparently) well regarded text but in my opinion many trees have been unnecessarily sacrificed.
