Handbook of Distance Education

Cover Art
Handbook of Distance Education - Michael Grahame Moore
ISBN: 1136635572
Publication Date: 3rd edition, 2013
The third edition of this award-winning Handbook continues the mission of its predecessors: to provide a comprehensive compendium of research in all aspects of distance education, arguably the most significant development in education over the past three decades. While the book deals with education that uses technology, the focus is on teaching and learning and how its management can be facilitated through technology. Comprehensive coverage includes all aspects of distance education, including design, instruction, management, and policy.
