Abstract

Meeting the needs of today’s learners requires instructors and administrators to rethink delivery strategies and instructional methods. Many organizations are turning to distance education, because of its effectiveness, to help learners develop and improve their knowledge, skills, and abilities. The fact that you are reading this book leads us to assume that you have several questions about designing and delivering distance courses and programs. Our own experiences, research, and education have guided us in writing this book. We continue to question “What are the best practices for distance education?” “How do I assess meaningful learning?” and “How do I actively engage learners?”
