Reviews and Testimonials

This book constitutes an impressive reference work for online teaching and learning. Yang and Wang have compiled twenty articles from forty-seven educators and researchers in ten countries, covering topics as diverse as academic integrity in online learning to choosing the best learning management system. Simply the enormity of the information can be intimidating. However, its clear organization and intuitive structure help teachers navigate its pages with relative ease.
