Where is the CD info for the Kindle version? Jan. 22 2012
By Linda M. Payne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have just downloaded the e-textbook and started reading it. Unfortunately, the first few pages state there is an accompanying CD with the print version, featuring supplemental material for the book. Is Amazon making any allowances for this CD? It would be nice if they would issue some sort of key to the publisher's website so that buyers of the kindle format could still use the same materials as the print version. Then the publisher could have the same material available for buyers of the kindle version. Unfortunately, it isn't at the publisher's webpage in any format.
Also, this e-book is the 2nd printing of the print version. This book is now out in the 3rd edition (as seen from the [...] website). What's going on? Will this ebook be upgraded (sad for me as I just bought the e-book)? Please look into this matter.

Extremely Accessible and Great Basic Information March 28 2008
By J. Craine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I operate an educational multimedia publishing group serving the public healthcare sector. I found this book to be eminently approachable and extremely well organized. I was able to read through it over a weekend. One can get to the key concepts (the HOW) of each chapter without being forced to muddle through the supporting theory. That being said, all major concepts are well supported by research and cognitive theory for those who wish to understand the WHY. It is important to note that the authors' focus is mostly on the corporate training world and adult learners needing to develop fundamental skills. Not until chapter 14 do they discuss approaches to more advanced learners. Overall, I highly recommend this book. It should be on the shelf of everyone who is creating e-learning for adult learners.

Great Book - Useless CD March 15 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is excellent: a compendium of course design knowledge with lots of illustrations/examples. It does warn in the first chapter--and worth repeating--that the audience for the book is corporate trainers, not educators.

One of the reasons I ordered the book, however, was the hope of using a text-to-voice editor to "read" the CD to me (I wanted the text of the book on the CD) - an expedient way to get through the book quickly. However, I was disappointed that the CD is actually useless. It has a three-page "E-learning checklist" based on the book, but the rest of the items on the CD are just contact info for the publisher, links to organizations like ASTD, bio's for the authors, and a help menu on how to use the CD (If you were having trouble using the CD, how could you get to this menu item???).

The CD was quite disappointing considering the book is all about using technology to help people learn efficiently through media. However, don't let that stop you from purchasing the book. It is a great resource!

Best e-learning book I have read June 22 2010
By E. DeBray - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
As a graduate student that is learning about multimedia production, I have read many a boring book on distance and online education. This book was the easiest to read and follow of any I have read. Not only that, readers can trust the information given as well performed, reliable, and valid studies are used to back up these guidelines. Both authors are well published. As someone who wants to have reilable information from those who know, this is the book I would recommend to anyone who wants to know the best way to help students learn online.

Usefull evidence based information June 26 2008
By H. Wientjes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Loads of best practises that is based on solid research. Quite a few eye openers as well. There are already enough of the quick do and don'ts books, this book finally gives me solid base I was looking for. And I totally disagree with others that the book is boring. I really enjoy reading it. It is not hard to read even for foreigners (like me).
