The power of eLearning does not come from technology alone. Rather, it is unleashed when teachers know how to use technology to create better instruction. The focus of this book is on eLearning pedagogy. Straightforward and practical, many of the concepts are based on the common sense strategies experienced teachers discover through trial and error when using technology in the classroom.
