by William A. Draves
As a proponent and authority on lifelong learning, Draves turns his attention in this volume to the most powerful contemporary tool for democratizing and proliferating adult learning — the Internet. He asserts that the Internet not only changes how we learn, what we learn, who is learning, but must change the way we teach.
Online learning will constitute 50% of the way people will learn. It will not be 100%, and we will still have in-person learning, but even in-person learning will be very different from how it is today. The Internet is changing the way we learn.
This well-organized book lays out the most accepted common features of online teaching — useful for new online teachers and those who want to add online elements to face-to-face teaching. Advanced online instructors will also find new tips, including original — and possibly controversial — ideas on strategic planning.
