The SAGE Handbook of E-learning Research

Second Edition
Edited by:


© 2016 | 606 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

The new edition of The SAGE Handbook of E-Learning Research retains the original effort of the first edition by focusing on research while capturing the leading edge of e-learning development and practice. Chapters focus on areas of development in e-learning technology, theory, practice, pedagogy and method of analysis.

Covering the full extent of e-learning can be a challenge as developments and new features appear daily. The editors of this book meet this challenge by including contributions from leading researchers in areas that have gained a sufficient critical mass to provide reliable results and practices.

The 25 chapters are organised into six key areas:

1. THEORY

2. LITERACY & LEARNING

3. METHODS & PERSPECTIVES

4. PEDAGOGY & PRACTICE

5. BEYOND THE CLASSROOM

6. FUTURES
