Reviews and Testimonials

Editor Scheg presents students, academics, administrators, policy-makers, and researchers with a collection of academic essays and articles that provide a critical examination of distance, or remote, learning in a variety of disciplines. The twelve contributions, from a variety of international researchers and practitioners, that make up the bulk of the text are organized in three sections, devoted to critical examinations of distance education in the humanities disciplines, the science disciplines, and interdisciplinary or institutional distance learning programs. Scheg is a faculty member of Elizabeth City State University, North Carolina.

I highly recommend this textbook because it is essential for understanding the history, role and importance of distance education in higher education. Tools and solutions are proposed and provided for the reader, whether an administrator or faculty member. [...] A wonderful guidebook, research tool, and pedagogical guide from the novice to the experienced faculty member and administrator.
