Praise for Leadership and the E-Learning Organization

“Chock full of checklists and summaries, think of Leadership and the e-Learning Organization as a meta-job-aid for designers of learning environments. For example, my favorite chapter, ‘Constructivists ‘R’ Us: Pick the Epistemology that Works for You,’ packs more useful concepts into three pages than most 30-page articles in professional journals. I’m using its lessons in my current design project.”
                                             —Jay Cross, Internet Time Group

“I find this book particularly valuable because it ranges so eloquently from theory to praxis. It successfully answers many common ‘how to’ queries while, at the same time, forcing readers to ponder new questions about the industry. Most important, however, is the fact that Susan adds to each of her texts a personal touch that makes e-learning less abstract and more tangible and meaningful.”
                                             —Rob Reynolds, Ph.D.

“This text offers tech leaders a collection of pithy yet comprehensive insights about distance learning. Nash first intrigues readers with her witty chapter titles then follows through with surprisingly practical advice for successful implementation.”
                                             —Judy Baker, Ph.D.

In this book by Susan Smith Nash, who has been involved in the development and administration of distance and online courses since the early 1990s, you will find articles on leadership, teaching, curriculum, e-learning “in extremus,” technology (including the theory and effective use of podcasts, blogs, and new popular technology-forward devices), student needs and instructional activities that bring about highly effective learning situations. The articles in this book answer your questions. The solid scholarship and resources for further study help you succeed in the ever-evolving world of e-learning.
