I’m pleased to announce the publication of a free eBook, a collaborative effort between Routledge and the Online Learning Consortium. In the past five years, the Online Learning journal has undergone a name change (formerly the Journal of Asynchronous Learning Networks), a merger with the Journal for Online Learning and TEaching (JOLT), the flagship publication of the Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning and Online Teaching (MERLOT), and an expansion of the editorial board, including editor-in-chief Dr. Peter Shea who continues to act in this role. Other members of the editorial board have a broad range of expertise in online, blended, and digital education which brings me to the focus of this eBook. Many of the Online Learning editorial board members are Routledge authors and, when we look at our great Online Learning Consortium (OLC) community of members, volunteers, and friends, we have additional Routledge authors in common.
This eBook is a collection of the work of Online Learning editorial board members and the greater OLC community, including Charles Graham, Charles Dziuban Patsy Moskal, Robert Ubell, Susan Ko, Michelle Pacanksy-Brock, Thomas Cavanaugh, and Tony Picciano.
I hope you find this collection of chapters from Routledge authors who are committed to the Online Learning Journal, as well as the Online Learning Consortium, thought provoking. If you enjoy the book, you might want to consider purchasing individual copies of the books or the book bundle, which greatly reduces the cost of each title.
