Designed to help teachers give their students the best possible learning experience, the book focuses on the actual process of learning as the core theoretical base upon which online effective learning environments are developed and sustained.

    The book discusses how adults learn and how faculty can best assist them in reaching their educational goals.

The book also includes the results of several studies of online students and their professors, sharing advice on how to succeed in online classes. It gives online students a voice, presenting essays detailing their perspectives on their learning experiences and their views of effective and ineffective instruction.

Developed with educators new to online teaching in mind, the book is well-suited to upper-division and graduate level education courses, as well as courses helping educators transition from face-to-face to online teaching.
