9781843345244: The Internet and Higher Education: Achieving Global Reach (Chandos Learning and Teaching Series)

The purpose of this book is to increase understanding of the major theories, issues, challenges, and solutions related to online distance education. It balances practical advice with a description of the theoretical and research-based underpinnings for the culturally-responsive strategies presented. An important integrating theme is the impact of globalization and internationalization on all aspects of distance education. Consequently, the book examines the implications of global reach and cross-border education, and promotes the integration of global learning in academic programs. Key Features: Addresses the global reach of distance education and associated cultural, linguistic, and accreditation issues; describes the latest online learning technologies, e.g. blogs, wikis, podcasting, mobile learning, virtual worlds, etc.; addresses the culture of higher education in many new directions, e.g. academic capitalism, consumerism, and competition among non-profit, for-profit, and corporate universities; and provides practical, research-based solutions to real-world problems. Contents: Key Concepts of Online Higher Education; Key Distance Education Issues; Technology and the Internet; Designing Online Programs and Courses; Teaching and Learning Online; Quality Assurance and Institutional Effectiveness.
