Online Distance Education PDF ebook download "Online Distance Education: Towards a Research Agenda" offers a
systematic overview of the major issues, trends, and areas of priority
in online distance education research. In each chapter, an
international expert or team of experts provides an overview of one
timely issue in online distance education, summarizing major research
on the topic, discussing theoretical insights that guide the research,
posing questions and directions for future research, and discussing the
implications for distance education practice as a whole. Intended as a
primary reference and guide for distance educators, researchers, and
policymakers, "Online Distance Education" addresses aspects of
distance education practice that have often been marginalized,
including issues of cost and economics, concerns surrounding social
justice, cultural bias, the need for faculty professional development,
and the management and growth of learner communities. At once soundly
empirical and thoughtfully reflective, yet also forward-looking and
open to new approaches to online and distance teaching, this text is a
solid resource for researchers in a rapidly expanding discipline.Olaf Zawacki-Richter is professor of educational
technology at the University of Oldenburg, and also teaches in the
online Masters of Distance Education and E-Learning program offered
