Highly Recommended. This book on emerging technology-supported learning and teaching environments in higher education embodies 20 solid chapters rich in content and organization. What empowers this scholarly work is that it sheds light on both students’ and faculty members’ perceptions about integrating information and communication technologies (ICTs) into online and blended learning/teaching settings based on individual and collective experiences with these technologies both inside and outside of the classroom. Also, as a compilation of extremely informative chapters, this handbook stands out as an impressive academic work written for researchers, scholars, and practitioners that have special expertise on the topic on multiple levels including the theory, pedagogy, and practice of technology.
