Synopsis

Global Perspectives on e-Learning Rhetoric and Reality by Alison A. Carr-Chellman

'This is indeed a disturbing, informative and readable book. I commend it warmly to those who may wish to find out about developments in e-learning around the world; to those who have consciences which will be disturbed by much of what is highlighted and summarised here; to those willing to re-examine their optimism about the potential and implications of e-learning; and to those similarly willing to re-consider their pessimism. Buy it, read it, re-read it, question - and keep seeking answers' - John Cowan Visiting Professor, Educational Development Unit, Napier University, British Journal Educational Technology Global Perspectives on E-Learning presents several international case studies of online education written by authorities on e-learning and discusses the rhetoric that surrounds this form of teaching and learning. Illustrative sase studies from Africa, Asia, Europe, North America and Australasia are provided.

Reviews

Global Perspectives on E-Learning offers an authoritative compendium of online teaching and learning in a cross-section of nations around the World. This is a state-of-the-art review of promising online programs by authors who have participated in the movement. Rarely do we find such current and authoritative information about educational technology developments in more than a dozen countries in six continents. -- Don Ely We need more critical and reflective texts on distance education and its evolution within a global framework. The authors provide the reader a social and political context for thinking about global education. -- Roberto Muffoletto Global Perspectives on E-Learning is a fascinating expedition on the road to democratizing online/distance learning through the dichotomy of rhetoric and social realities in countries around the world. -- Paul Gathercoal I think this is an excellent text. It provides the reader with a broad international perspective of distance education, something that is in short supply. -- Chris Zirkle A must-read for policy framers and curriculum shapers. -- The Hindu Business Line The Hindu Business Line The book is well written and well organized. It adds significantly to the literature that addresses global perspectives on e-learning, and is of particular interest to those seeking additional information about international programs. Cases represent different examples from five continents. Therefore the book is particularly useful for instructional designers, and policy makers who work for the disseminating online distance learning. -- Murat Ataizi Eskisehir, Turkey This is indeed a disturbing, informative, and readable book. I commend it warmly to those who may wish to find out about developments in e-learning around the world; to those who have consciences which will be disturbed by much of what is highlighted and summarized here; to those willing to re-examine their optimism about the potential and implications of e-learning; and to those similarly willing to reconsider their pessimism. Buy it, read it, re-read it, question-and keep seeking answers. -- BRITISH JOURNAL OF EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY BRITISH JOURNAL OF EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY This volume brings together a number of reports on the global phenomenon of online distance education (referred to as e-learning) in several countries in Asia, Europe, North America, Oceania, and Africa. Editor Carr-Chellman and the respective chapter authors adopt a critical perspective of 'international capitalist e-learning.'... This book is for policy makers, practitioners, and the general public interested in gaining a more balanced perspective on how closely the rhetoric matched the reality of online distance learning. -- P.S. Cookson CHOICE Global Perspectives on E-Learning: Rhetoric and Reality will be useful to students and research of distance learning, as well as those interested in global education, policy, and the cultural and political context of learning. The book is successful in presenting a critical, if perhaps unpopular, analysis of the current international applications of e-learning, but it is certainly not a negation of the usefulness of e-learning itself. -- William Bescia and Kelly Schwartz ETR&D

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
