"At a time when universities face the consequences of the recent economic crises, and when climate change demands adaptation on a large scale soon, does e-learning have something special to offer to students? Read this book to find out. The authors are sane: they don’t exaggerate. They look forward as well as telling the story so far. University teachers and administrators have reason to bless them for their lucid analysis and clear vision."--British Journal of Educational Technology
"The authors produce informative and thought-provoking chapters that add a refreshing and holistic perspective on the diffusion of e-learning in HE. The topics covered in their book relate to the current debates in the field, yet break away from the trend…. Their book is a useful consideration for university and professional development teacher courses as it raises the issues associated with the infrastructural aspects, pedagogic considerations and the need to associate the practical uses of technology to enhance the learning experience."--Teachers College Record
