Abstract

This is a book from a highly respected author that draws on many of his past journal publications and other writings.  He is also an author steeped in the recent history of distance and online education in North America.  If online distance education is really going to be accepted and integrated into the culture of our universities and other educational establishments, then there has to be an holistic understanding of how its development should be approached, how it should be targeted and how it can be delivered to be as effective as more traditional study modes.

 

The author offers a distillation of his experiences and observations via a series of short narratives about particular students and the circumstances of their studies.
