With the emphasis on faculty experiences and efforts to enhance higher learning in less-developed regions, Teaching with Educational Technology in the 21st Century: The Case of the Asia-Pacific Region is a comprehensive study of teaching applications involving educational technology. The book encourages collaboration across geographical borders to promote information literacy, facilitate the learning process, and to establish a greater infusion of technology throughout the region.

Intended as a guide,

Teaching with Educational Technology in the 21st Century: The Case of the Asia-Pacific Region looks clearly at the impact of distance education programs, articulation issues, faculty technical competency levels and offers solutions for policy makers and educators to remain current with basic technical applications. It explains how education is no longer confined to a geographical space and reaches out as a model to all interested in promoting quality higher education across geographical and cultural borders.

"The authors have very impressively addressed the approaches and applications of technology in higher education in this book. The book may serve, among others, chiefly the teachers for their capacity building in utilizing the technology for enhancing their instruction; the students for their transformation into e-learners in this global village; and the policy makers for promoting technology-enhanced teaching and learning environment in and out of the classroom, beyond the limits of time, pace and space."

The book has a good reference list and index, many appendices, and, at the end of each chapter, a brief summary.
