Theory and Practice Of Online Learning

"In the seven weeks since its launch, more than 11,000 people have downloaded the online book, "Theory and Practice of Online Learning," Athabasca University's most recent contribution to online and distance education around the world. Edited by Drs. Terry Anderson and Fathi Elloumi, "Theory and Practice" compiles the online and distance education expertise developed at Canada's Open University during the past 30 years. In 454 free-to-download pages, it addresses the practical issues all online educators face, from infrastructure and course development to student support and copyright issues.
According to Anderson, sharing online expertise in an open source project like, "Theory and Practice" is one way Athabasca University can say thank-you to the people who have provided funding over the years. "This provides exposure to the quality of work we do, and it helps us reflect on our own work, and the work of members within the institution."
