Developing and managing e-learning
E-learningThe potential of computer networks in schools, colleges and universities to provide resources and tools for learning is yet to be fully exploited. The authors of this series of books recognise that e-learning will only make a valid contribution if it is effectively integrated into a well-conceived and balanced programme of education. The authors outline how this can be achieved whether you are just starting to consider e-learning, or have reasonable facility with the technology.
