From the Back Cover
Online Learning: Concepts, Strategies, and Application is based on the principles of learning as a social process. It details a journey from theory to practice, informing the design of powerful and engaging online learning environments. A consistent theme in this book is the interaction between pedagogical models, instructional strategies, and learning technologies. This process is embedded in a flexible, yet systematic and integrative instructional design framework that enables the reader to envision, plan for, and implement customized instructional designs for online learning.Features of this text:
- Three-part organization: Part I offers theory, research, and pedagogy as groundwork leading to Part II, which provides specific instructional design methods and strategies. Part III discusses the history and future of instructional technologies and gives readers the tools and techniques with which to select the appropriate e-Learning delivery applications.
- Authentic scenarios related to the design, development, and implementation of online learning in higher education contexts, schools, and corporate settings are provided at the beginning of each chapter, providing real-world relevance to the chapter content.
- Learning activities at the end of each chapter engage students in applying online learning concepts and strategies in real-world contexts. For Chapters 2, 3, 5, 6, and 9, these learning activities are completed on the interactive companion website at www.prenhall.com/dabbagh , where students browse interactive tables, download PDF files, and examine an array of examples of instructional contexts and cases for analysis.

If I had to rate the printing and quality of the book itself, I would rate it one star. I was very disappointed in the poor quality of the book itself. For the price of this book, one would expect that the book would be printed more professionally and that you could clearly read all of the pages. This book has the appearance of just being photocopied. After several weeks, my book also started to come apart! The saying about you get what you pay for does not apply to the quality of this book. One would expect that when you pay around $70 for a book, that the quality if the print job would be good. As is, I am going to have to check into how much it would cost for me to get the book spiral bound because it is falling apart.
The books pages appear to be run off a copy machine, and poorly done at that. There is no consistent centering, the margins are all over the place, so much so, its distracting while I am trying to read it.
I am getting rid of this book and finding something produced with a little (or any) quality.
Pearson Education typically has produced high quality books, not sure why this one is so terrible.
