Neither an academic tome nor a prescriptive 'how to' guide, The Theory and Practice of Online Learning is an illuminating collection of essays by practitioners and scholars active in the complex field of distance education. Distance education has evolved significantly in its 150 years of existence. For most of this time, it was an individual pursuit defined by infrequent postal communication. But recently, three more developmental generations have emerged, supported by television and radio, teleconferencing, and computer conferencing. The early 21st century has produced a fifth generation, based on autonomous agents and intelligent, database-assisted learning, that has been referred to as Web 2.0. The second edition of "The Theory and Practice of Online Learning" features updates in each chapter, plus four new chapters on current distance education issues such as connectivism and social software innovations.

Online Collaborative Learning: Theory and Practice provides a resource for researchers and practitioners in the area of online collaborative learning (also known as CSCL, computer-supported collaborative learning), particularly those working within a tertiary education environment. It includes articles of relevance to those interested in both theory and practice in this area. It attempts to answer such important current questions as: how can groups with shared goals work collaboratively using the new technologies? What problems can be expected, and what are the benefits? In what ways does online group work differ from face-to-face group work? And what implications are there for both educators and students seeking to work in this area?

This book is a contribution to a growing body of e-learning applications in archaeology and archaeological heritage. Its main aim is to discuss various facets of the Leonardo da Vinci project 'E-learning as a tool of knowledge transfer in the field of protection and management of archaeological heritage, ' completed in the years 2007-2009 by six European partners in the context of other undertakings in distance learning solutions in archaeology over the last few years. The project's explicit objective was to exchange the best practices and innovative solutions in the field of the archaeological heritage of northern Europe. In particular, its major purpose was to design, develop, test, assess and implement web based training solutions in developing and upgrading vocational skills in this sector by preparing and conducting a multimedia e-learning course composed of fifteen interrelated modules. Furthermore, the project developed and implemented new methodology including the transfer of knowledge from the conventional to the e-learning format and the elaborated training methodology. The book is composed of an introduction and eleven chapters. Seven of them refer directly to various facets of the project such as its design, methodology, implementation, and evaluation. The remaining four contributions discuss current initiatives in implementing different distance and e-learning solutions in archaeology. The introductory chapter written by Mark Pluciennik debates extensively the benefits and failures of distance learning and e-learning as well as pressures for convergence between them as well as between e-learning and traditional learning. For the author e-learning is a complement mode of content delivery, which in places proves to be the most efficient one. However, it is clear that not all learning can be done through digital presentation, video or the manipulation of processed data. This is especially so in the discipline such as archaeology where one has to learn a range of practical and embodied skills. If we choose to implement e-learning solutions, however, it is necessary to provide a serious structural, resource and staff support being a prerequisite for supplying and maintaining high-quality and up-to-date education. The following seven papers cover various aspect of the project itself. They discuss the training content as well as methodology of the course production and training. In particular, they refer to the models and methods of distance training and their applicability for the sector of archaeological heritage and tools used in the distance learning process, use of multimedia, learning management systems supporting conducting distance learning, in particular the LMS/LCMS system's functionality as well as details of the course's preparation and implementation and the training process. An important part of the book is aimed at evaluating the course content and training process. It is based upon careful and systematic questionnaires that were collected among trainees in all participating countries after the completion of the course. This section contains also personal accounts of both trainers and trainees. The last two papers present two ongoing e-learning programme in archaeology implemented. These comprise project Arkeonet conducted by the Aranzadi Science Society (Spain) and a Leonardo da Vinci project Archaeology and Construction Engineering Skills (ACES)

Learner-Centered Theory and Practice in Distance Education: Cases From Higher Education brings the voice of the learning sciences to the study and design of distance learning. The contributors examine critical issues in the design of theoretically and pedagogically based distance education programs. Eight distance education programs are described in enough detail to allow readers with different interests to understand the pedagogical approaches and the implications of implementing those approaches. Issues of theory, pedagogy, design, assessment, communities of practice, collaboration, and faculty development are discussed. Each section of the book includes: *a primary chapter written by an author or authors involved with a distance education program that reflects learner-centered principles; *a formal reaction to the chapter by a specialist from the learning sciences, educational evaluation and policy, administration, or the corporate sector with expertise in issues of distance learning; and *an edited transcript of the authors' discussion of the primary chapter held at a symposium at the Asilomar Conference Center. A final "summing up" section offers two perspectives--from leading scholars outside the fields of instructional design, evaluation, and the learning sciences--on the approaches and thinking reflected in the rest of the book. This book is essential for researchers, as well as all those engaged in delivering, supporting, or administrating distance education programs at the post-secondary level. The descriptions, strategies, and principles will inform the design of continuing education, as well as degree-based education and corporate education and training, and distance education programs for adults.
