Reviews and Testimonials
"Jon Dron has made a major contribution to our understanding of learning in the networked era. This book will likely do what writing by Alex Romiszowski in the 1980s, and Tony Bates did for scholars and distance education practitioners in the 90s."
– Terry Anderson, Canada Research Chair in Distance Education and Editor, Canada
"Dron considers the way that individuals learn and specifically how an online learning environment can affect the learning path. He describes how networked learning environments should be constructed to give control to learners, and synthesizes theories about learner control, autonomy, self-direction, adult learning, and other concepts into a single theory of transactional control from a systems perspective."

"This is a happy hunting ground for anyone looking to argue against over-enthusiasm for institutional virtual learning environments."
