Full recordShow full item record
AbstractThe publication of the second edition of the SAGE Handbook of E-learning Research attests to the continued need for study and understanding of learning practices in contemporary technology-supported and technology-enabled educational, work and social settings. In preparing the first edition (Andrews & Haythornthwaite, 2007a), we found that while there had been considerable development in teaching and learning online, and in learning design, there was no coherent view of what constituted research in the field. Writing for this 2016 edition, we find there has been much progress in research, but it has taken many new directions, each wrestling with how to analyze and represent learning in an era of continuing change in technologies, learning practices, and knowledge distribution. This volume, like the last, takes stock of progress in e-learning research, highlighting advances as well as new directions in studies and methods for approaching and keeping up with changes in learning in an e-society.
