At a time of increasing globalisation, the concept of open and distance learning is being constantly redefined. New technologies have opened up new ways of understanding and participating in Learning. Distributed Learning offers a collection of perspectives from a social and cultural practice-based viewpoint, with contributions from leading international authors in the field. Key issues in this comprehensive text are: *the challenges of ICT to traditional teaching and learning practices *the value and relevance of 'activity theory' and 'communities of practice' in educational institutions and the workplace *perspectives on the relationship between globalisation and distributed learning, and the breakdown of distinctions between global and local contexts *issues of identity and community in designing courses for the virtual student *language and literacies in distributed learning contexts This book provides useful introductory reading, building a sound theoretical framework for practitioners interested in how distributed learning is shaping post-compulsory education.

The new edition of The SAGE Handbook of E-Learning Research retains the original effort of the first edition by focusing on research while capturing the leading edge of e-learning development and practice. Chapters focus on areas of development in e-learning technology, theory, practice, pedagogy and method of analysis. Covering the full extent of e-learning can be a challenge as developments and new features appear daily. The editors of this book meet this challenge by including contributions from leading researchers in areas that have gained a sufficient critical mass to provide reliable results and practices. The 25 chapters are organised into six key areas: 1. THEORY 2. LITERACY & LEARNING 3. METHODS & PERSPECTIVES 4. PEDAGOGY & PRACTICE 5. BEYOND THE CLASSROOM 6. FUTURES

"This book makes a great shot at disentangling the challenge of the diversity of learning technologies and their intricate association with pedagogical approaches. The terms used by the book -- combining, uniting and interrelationships -- in some ways underplay the major challenges it poses. Have a good read of it -- and most importantly try out some ideas." Gilly Salmon, Professor of E-learning & Learning Technologies, Beyond Distance Research Alliance "This [book] represents a significant collection of papers which, I am sure, will help inform the development of an online pedagogy for problem-based learning." Michael Prosser, Director Research and Evaluation, Higher Education Academy "The studies presented in this book are evidence informed and theoretically framed in ways that promise to advance our understanding of these complex areas. This collection will be an invaluable read for anyone involved in PBL and/or e-learning in higher education. " Glynis Cousin, Senior Adviser, Higher Education Academy Problem-based Learning Online is the first book to: Address the current issues and debates about problem-based learning (PBL) online together in one volume Present and explore the range and diversity of application of PBL online Examine questions such as how course design and issues of power influence learning in PBL The book provides research-based information about the realities of setting up and running problem-based programmes using technology in a variety of ways.
