There are two important facts which need to be remembered about e-Learning. The first is that there has seldom been a subject more fashionable and the second is that there has seldom been a subject which is more open to misunderstanding.
It is obvious to nearly everyone that education throughout the world is under pressure to change. Education is expensive, or even education is extremely expensive. As the world transforms from highly individualist economies into economies that want to be regarded as global players so the demand for education soars. As the demand grows so does the cost of delivery. Now we talk about mass education which scares some of the older members of the education establishment.
There are few people today who would oppose the view that e-learning has to become an integral part of the education of the future. And indeed, when e-Learning is correctly employed it can be highly effective and cost efficient.
Melanie Ciussi and Erik Gebers Freitas have put together an excellent collection of leading research papers on this subject. Readers, researchers, teachers and students will find this book very rewarding. 174 pages
