In response to nearly 1.5 billion students being shifted to online-only education environments and the challenges K-12 educators are facing with this “new norm” of education, IGI Global is introducing a new K-12 Online Learning Education E-Book Collection, which features 285+ of our highly demanded titles that have been contributed and utilized by prestigious institutions, including the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Harvard University, Stanford University, University of Cambridge, Tsinghua University, and more.

“Traditionally, online learning has been attributed to higher education institutions where online programs have become normal and effective in the past few years. Catering to adults, the implementation of this teaching style has not faced the same challenges that transitioning to online learning in K-12 settings has wrought,” explains Ms. Melissa Wagner, Editorial Director of IGI Global. “This collection was put together to address the specific needs of K-12 educators and outlines the best practices, strategies, and techniques that can guide teachers and school leaders to develop effective online learning experiences for their students.”

As a scientific research publisher of education for over 30 years and as an active participant in the American Education Research Association, IGI Global has been one of the most sought-after publishers in the education technology space, due to the creditability of our research, which is backed by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). To discuss the trends within the K-12 education space, leading IGI Global editors recently provided their insights on this collection and the future of online education during the K-12 Online Learning Seminar that featured this K-12 Online Learning E-Book Collection.
