As e-learning becomes more common, Hiltz and Goodman present empirical evidence on designing and teaching effective online courses. The volume provides an overview of models and an assessment of what needs to happen next. The emphasis is on the text-based asynchronous use of networks (e-mail, the Web) to support student-to- student and also teacher-to-student communication and collaborative learning.

This is a book you will refer to often-for ideas, theories, and references. Robin Mason British Open University; Co-author, The Connecticon: Learning for the Connected.

By Starr Roxanne Hiltz, Rickl Goldman. Over the past decade there has been an explosion not only of online courses, but also of studies on them.

First Published 2004.

To date, most OLEs are technical modifications of existing discussion software, and not platforms built specifically with the on-line learner and facilitator in mind

It models the variables and processes that are important in determining the relative effectiveness of online learners working to reach a deeper level of understanding by interacting with each other and with the texts under investigation.

This collection of essays emanated from a 2-day workshop on teaching in asynchronous learning networks (ALN) .

This collection of essays emanated from a 2-day workshop on teaching in asynchronous learning networks (ALN) organized in 2002 by the New Jersey Institute of Technology. It is for this reason that the focus of the collection is upon adult education rather than ALN applications in primary and secondary schools.

This book is about the past and future of research on the effectiveness of learning networks (also known as "e-learning" or "online learning" or "Web-based learning"). Learning networks are groups of people using computer technology, communicating and collaborating online to build knowledge together. Over the past decade there has been an explosion not only of online courses, but also of studies on them. In Learning Together Online: Research on Asynchronous Learning Networks, leading researchers in the field use an integrated theoretical framework, which they call "Online Interaction Learning Theory," to organize what past research shows and where future research is going. It models the variables and processes that are important in determining the relative effectiveness of online learners working to reach a deeper level of understanding by interacting with each other and with the texts under investigation. Now that there have been hundreds of studies and thousands of courses offered online, what does the empirical evidence show? This book addresses the question directly by presenting what is known from re about how to design and teach courses effectively online, ranging from the organizational context and characteristics of students to learning theories and research design methods. It also provides a research agenda for the next decade. Learning Together Online: Research on Asynchronous Learning Networks is both a textbook for graduate students and a professional reference for faculty teaching online, researchers conducting studies, and graduate students taking courses about learning technologies who need to know the state of the art of research in the area of online learning.
