Author(s)/Editor(s) Biography

Myron Orleans started his online experience by dabbling with Internet sites in support of on-ground courses in the 1990s. He began teaching fully online courses in 2004 and retired from his full time position in 2007 to devote himself solely to online instruction. Working in a variety of settings of higher education, he has designed and delivered his own courses, taught courses others have designed, revised existing courses, and designed courses that others have taught. He has worked with many administrations, faculty members, and students. His online instructional experience has been diverse and varied, stimulating his interest in developing a critical/ qualitative approach to understanding this process. It is his premise that only through this approach can we deeply understand the varieties of experience of online instruction.
