Product description


"This book offers more than 95 ideas for designing and delivering online instruction as a creative spark for distance learning." (Journal of Continuing Higher Education, Fall 2007)


"For those who think online learning can't be truly interactive, Patti Shank and her colleagues clearly demonstrate—in hundreds of examples—that it can be. The real lesson in The Online Learning Idea Book is that technology doesn't build interactive learning; creative thinking and good, solid instructional design does. Using even a smidgen of the great ideas in this book will increase the learning effectiveness of any online program."
—Marc J. Rosenberg, consultant, and author of Beyond E-Learning

"Harness these ideas and multiply your expertise! There's nothing like tried-and-true activities to help increase the value of your online content. This book is a veritable smorgasbord of creative and engaging ideas!"
—Cynthia S. Wehmer, CPT, IT training manager, Coors Brewing Company

"E-learning is a rapidly changing field with new best practices being discovered every day. The Online Learning Idea Book is a fantastic resource for designers, developers, and training professionals to find innovative ideas and proven approaches that make e-learning effective."
—Josh Bersin, CEO, Bersin & Associates

"This book manages to be concrete, yet theory based; innovative, yet practical; and—miraculously for the training-book genre—light on its feet."
—Bill Ellet, editor, Training Media Review

"Looking for practical, insightful, tried-and-tested ideas that you can quickly apply in your online learning programs? Get The Online Learning Idea Book now. I'm sure you'll find an idea you can apply in your very next project (I did), and the book will pay for itself!"
—Harvey Singh, founder and CEO, Instancy, Inc.

"McKeachie’s Teaching Tips, now in its 12th edition, has been distributed for years to new faculty members in higher education. As more instructors go online, I predict that instructional support personnel will also provide them with the latest edition of Shank’s The Online Learning Idea Book."
—Thomas C. Reeves, professor, department of educational psychology and instructional technology, College of Education, The University of Georgia

"Patti Shank has collected great ideas about online learning and teaching from all over the globe. If you are an online instructor or instructional designer looking for new ways to involve and engage your learners, you’ll be inspired by this book!"
—Terry Morris, associate professor, William Rainey Harper Colleges
