Welcome to my personal site for resources in online learning and distance education. It is personal because it contains the resources I have found useful and interesting.
I focus mainly on resources associated with or relevant to post-secondary education. This site is meant as a resource for students, faculty and academic administrators interested in online learning.
Although I have overall responsibility for this site, I am helped by other experts in distance education and online learning, who provide additional resources and links, and manage some of the discussions. The priority for all posts on this site is quality. All selected publications have been personally read either by me or by my collaborators. They are chosen for their relevance and value to teaching well with technology.
There are two ways to use this site to find resources on online learning. The first is to do a ‘flat’ search, by putting in a keyword or phrase in the search box (top right). This will bring up, in chronological order, most recent posting first, all the posts that have been tagged with the words entered. The second is to do a ‘vertical’ search, by drilling down through ‘selected bibliography by topic’ (under ‘Resources’), and then searching under the appropriate category heading. The flat search will bring up all postings relevant to the key word. The vertical search is more likely to lead you to a specific article or post.
This site is up-dated almost daily. If you would like notification of new postings, click on (the RSS button) on the top right of this page and follow the instructions.
I also welcome appropriate comments on my blogs. What’s an appropriate comment? Watch this (the Seminole Swamp Morning Show, from the Langwitches Blog):
Through this site you can also find further information about me and my consultancy work.
So – happy browsing!
