Managing E-Learning Strategies: Design, Delivery, Implementation and Evaluation provides readers with a broad understanding of the emerging field of e-learning and also advises readers on the issues that are critical to the success of a meaningful e-learning environment. It walks you through the various factors critical to developing, evaluating and implementing e-learning. Throughout the book critical e-learning factors are presented as questions that readers can ask themselves when planning, designing, evaluating and implementing e-learning modules, courses and programs.

Managing E-Learning Strategies: Design, Delivery, Implementation and Evaluation not only introduces the important issues in e-learning, but can be used as a workbook to design, develop and implement e-learning in academic, corporate, government and other settings.

Reviews and Testimonials

"Managing E-Learning Strategies provides a solid framework for reviewing components and features of e-learning programs and courses. The eight dimensions of the framework, along with the checklists and questions, cover everything from institution planning to course planning and evaluation. "The chapter on pedagogical issues was critical in the designing of my course. As an instructor, it is important to know the varied methods that are useful in the online environment. Managing E-Learning Strategies provides many examples of learning strategies and provides superb explanation on when and why to use these strategies. "Evaluation is often an area that is left unmentioned. Managing E-Learning Strategies provides a very in-depth look at evaluation with information for evaluating every facet of the online environment – including the course, program, and institutional level."

– Linda Kingston, Distance Learning Coordinator, Alexandria Technical College, USA

The eight dimensions Dr. Khan has identified provide a useful framework for examining the development, distribution and management of e-learning. The chapters expanding on [the framework] each end with references to deepen your understanding, and checklists to aid in the assessment of each aspect of the author's framework. The chapter on pedagogical issues provides a broad-brush overview of analysis ([content], audience, media, etc.), and highlights more than a dozen instructional strategies before discussing the benefits of a blended strategy approach. The book promises to be not only a valuable field resource, but also a comprehensive textbook for all members of the e-learning team – instructors, developers, designers, students, and administrators in government, industry and academia."
