o        Practical, straightforward language

o        Focus on helping students acclimate to the online classroom faster

o        Key information and suggestions for succeeding as an online learner

o        Common relevant topics covered with an online spin, such as motivation, time management, and self-knowledge

o        Detailed discussion of topics of particular relevance to online learners

o        Application of current research and theory on learning styles and personality profiles to online learning

The new edition includes timely new chapters covering hot topics like e-books, hybrid modality, and mobile and 21st century learning.  First edition chapters have been expanded to reflect new developments in educational technology and to include updated research & statistics.
