E-Learning in the 21st Century: A Framework for Research and Practice

cbb21 e Learning 51nbQdApvrL. SL160  E Learning in the 21st Century: A Framework for Research and Practice

The second edition of E-Learning in the 21st Century provides a coherent, comprehensive, and empirically-based framework for understanding e-learning in higher education. Garrison draws on his decades of experience and extensive research in the field to explore the technological, pedagogical, and organizational implications of e-learning. Most importantly, he provides practical models that educators can use to realize the full potential of e-learning. This book is unique in that it focuses less on the long list ever-evolving technologies and more on the search for an understanding of these technologies from an educational perspective.

The second edition has been fully revised and updated throughout and includes discussions of social media and mobile learning applications as well as other emerging technologies in today’s classrooms. This book is an invaluable resource for courses on e-learning in higher education as well as for researchers, practitioners and senior administrators looking for guidance on how to successfully adopt e-learning in their institutions.

    More responsive tertiary education [perhaps], April 14, 2004

    Perhaps it is not surprising that the authors of a book on e-learning are Canadian. Canada, like Australia, has had perennial problems with educating a population spread over vast distances. It is natural that Canada would have an intense interest in a means of providing remote higher education.

    The authors argue that e-learning is not some mirage of the dot com boom. In this book, they explain that it can be a fundamentally disruptive technology. That if correctly implemented, it can empower a more economic and effective teaching of specialised material, irrespective of the actual subject of the material.

    The application of e-learning to higher education is seen as better than for general primary or secondary education. There, the material is much the same across a nation, and traditional teaching methods are adequate. But for tertiary education, across an entire nation, there might be only limited demand for certain subjects, making it inefficient for every university to offer those.

    They don’t claim that there are exclusive pedagogies to be used in e-learning. Rather, that it lends itself to varied approaches, several of which can be effective.

    Excellent framework, February 23, 2008
    By 

    The book delivers an excellent framework for the analysis of on-line educational activities. The COI – model is strong, concrete and well documented. The impact of this model for future developments is potentially high as the present developments on the web are still within range of its ambition.
