'I would like to enthusiastically recommend The SAGE Handbook of E-Learning Research. An international set of authors have produced a highly readable handbook that covers topics in E-learning research, theory, policy, language and literacy, and design issues. The work draws on multiple perspectives ranging from early work in asynchronous learning networks to community organization in e-learning. This is a large and much needed work that organizes and illuminates issues in E-learning in a way that readers will be able to take away practical advice for their own use. I am quite pleased to see this handbook that provides a very useful organization of knowledge for our field' - John Bourne, Ph.D Professor and Executive Director, The Sloan Consortium (www.sloan-c.org) 'This book is an important contribution to the development of E-learning because its account of the research always begins with the context of learning from which the exploitation of technology can be viewed. The authors help us understand that technology affords new kinds of relationship between the learner and what is learned, and how it is learned. With this rich understanding, the book is able to build the wide-ranging research foundation on which the field can move forward' - Diana Laurillard, Institute of Education, University of London 'A comprehensive and compelling resource that provides a global perspective on a development that is transforming higher education' - David Pilsbury, Chief Executive, Worldwide Universities Network 'Unlike many how-to books on the topic...this work focuses on research for educators and others interested in how technology enhances or diminishes learning. Highly Recommended' - Choice Magazine This handbook provides a state-of-the-art, in-depth account of research in the rapidly expanding field of E-learning. The first of its kind, it provides reviews of over 20 areas in E-learning research by experts in the field, and provides a critical account of the best work to date. The contributors cover the basics of the discipline, as well as new theoretical perspectives. Areas of research covered by the Handbook include: - Contexts for researching e-learning - Theory and policy - Language and literacy - Design issues - History of the field The editors' introduction and many of the chapters show how multiple aspects of E-learning interact. The introduction also provides a new model for researching the field. This book is relevant for everyone in higher education, from undergraduate to faculty, as well as university administrators involved in providing E-learning. It will provide a research background for higher education, including universities, training colleges, and community colleges. It will also be relevant to those involved in any research and developmental aspect of E-learning - corporate trainers and those involved in online programs at secondary school or in virtual high schools. Whether you are a lecturer, researcher or programme designer, this is an essential read. Richard Andrews is Professor in English at the Institute of Education, University of London and Visiting Professor at New York University's Steinhardt School of Education, Culture and Human Development. Caroline Haythornthwaite is Associate Professor at the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

The result is an enjoyable-to-read, fresh and lively book, delivering an abundance of ideas about how to establish a supportive learning environment, design a well structured course and manage electronically mediated dialog, -- in other words, how to successfully facilitate learning in the new context of on-line distance education." —Michael G. Moore, Pennsylvania State University and Editor, The American Journal of Distance Education "This book is a fascinating, comprehensive, revealing array of information about online learning. It is full of practical applications and significant implications for a future where online learning will play an increasingly larger role. It is essential for any library keeping up on online learning innovations." —Dr. Bernard J. Luskin, President and Co-CEO, GlobalLearningSystems, Inc. Visiting Professor, Claremont Graduate University "This book not only is that rare breed that addresses online learning in both higher education and corporate environments but every chapter is intriguing, informative, and accurately grounded. This book provides a comprehensive, timely, and informative look at online learning in higher education and corporate training settings. For an update on the state of e-learning in educational and training environments, simply read this book." —Curtis J. Bonk, Ph.D., Indiana University and Courseshare.com "Business and Learning have enjoyed a symbiotic relationship in our culture. The pace of change, however, has created separation between these two vital elements. The "Handbook of Online Learning" showcases the latest thinking and applications in learning delivery, and offers real promise that the gap is being bridged." —D.M. Verkest, AT&T Wireless Services, Vice-President-National Operations "The authors of this book are all experienced distance educators who know what the issues are: How are people engaged in teaching and learning at a distance "present" to one another? How do you create a community in the class? How can a teacher deal with an obstreperous student? What are the teaching/learning environments in universities and corporations as they affect distance education? The essays in this book inhabit the border where the idea of distance education meets the reality. The give practical advice and provide examples informed by both theory and experience." —Stanley Chodorow, Professor Emeritus, University of California, San Diego & Former CEO, California Virtual University

'[T]his book provides an excellent overview of special education, which will be a valuable resource for teachers, school managers and administrators, parents and indeed anyone with an interest in the development of provision for pupils with special educational needs. It is also likely to be an invaluable source book for researchers and postgraduate students alike' - "REACH " 'The "Handbook" offers a range of views on how to empower all learners to transcend their current performance and go "beyond the limits"' -" Journal of Cognitive Education and Psychology " This text makes an important contribution to special education. Perhaps, more significantly, it makes an important contribution to inclusive education, and possibly, even more widely, to education in general...it is a book that has significance for all of us who wish to move education towards a more equitable, democratic, humane, and dignified system for our young people' -" Education in the North " In recent years there has been increasingly vigorous debate about the nature and purpose of special education, and what might be considered the appropriate responses to pupils who experience difficulties in learning. This Handbook brings together the most up to date knowledge of this area and will serve as the major source book of authoritative information and ideas about current and future directions for special education. It examines the intricate relation between theory, research and practice, and places a particular emphasis on what has been learned about providing for students who experience difficulties in learning, how these understandings can contribute to new conceptualisations of special education and the development of more inclusive schools. This comprehensive, research-based work, brings together scholarship on an international level, and covers topics that transcend national boundaries. It will become essential reading for all professionals and academics with any interest in this important and dynamic field.

This mainstreaming of internationalization is a fascinating phenomenon: new concepts, programs, providers, and methods of delivery are emerging; impressive national and regional scholarship programs have been established; radical reforms have been undertaken to make higher education globally competitive; and mobility of students and scholars has increased around the world. This groundbreaking handbook serves as a guide to internationalization of higher education and offers new strategies for its further development and expansion in the years to come. With a decidedly global approach, this volume brings together leading experts from around the world to illustrate the increasing importance of internationalization. The text encompasses the diversity and breadth of internationalization of higher education in all its thematic facets and regional impacts.
