'Few writers can appeal to both academics and practitioners. Few writers can take complex subjects and open them out in away that is both clear and entertaining, Gilly Salmon managed both of these challenges in writing E-moderating.' - Martyn Sloman, author of The E-learning Revolution

Salmon describes her five stage framework. This is an important device for helping students to familiarise themselves with virtual learning environments. It is essential to break down barriers to enable students to engage with online learning and to maximise the chances that they will be active participants rather than learners.
The only downside to the book is that Salmon can seem rather arrogant. She thinks that all students are going to be like those she has encountered in her past experience. The problem I have is that school children live their lives in messenger software and though social networking and so it will be rare to find new students who are not at least at stage 3 when they start. For me it is very dangerous to assume that the students you are going to teach now are going to behave like those you have taught before.
There's also plenty of substantial material on effective pedagogy, and it offers much more than superficial 'teaching tips' that seem so popular these days.
