The Next Generation of Distance Education : Unconstrained Learning Hardback
Edited by Leslie Moller, Jason Bond Huett
The world of education is being radically altered with the change being driven by technology, openness, and unprecedented access to knowledge.
Older correspondence-style methods of instructional delivery are passe and "classroom adapted to the web" approaches to learning are often ineffective and do little to harness the transformational potential of technology.
E-Learning scenarios, mobile technologies, communication and information access, and personal learning environments are becoming mainstream and, as a result, control of the learning process is shifting away from institutions and into the hands of learners.
This volumes promotes a forward-thinking agenda for research and scholarship that highlights new ideas, deep insights, and novel approaches to "unconstrained" learning.
