Web-enabled communication technologies are at the forefront of rapid change in education from the K-12 level through postgraduate education. The ascendancy of online learning environments has opened an array of opportunities and challenges, and has raised a formidable set of implications-in the pedagogical, economic, political, and other realms-that we have only begun to grasp, let alone fully manage.Online and Distance Learning: Concepts, Methodologies, Tools and Applications provides a comprehensive collection of case studies, empirical research, conceptual demonstrations, and best practices on Web-enabled learning technologies. This comprehensive, six-volume collection addresses all prominent aspects of online and distance learning, including information communication technologies applied to education, virtual classrooms, pedagogical systems, Web-based learning communities, library information systems, virtual universities, and numerous other topics. Collecting defining research in over 300 chapters from some 800 contributors representing more than 100 countries, Online and Distance Learning: Concepts, Methodologies, Tools and Applications enables libraries to provide a foundational reference to meet the information needs of researchers, educators, practitioners, administrators, and all other stakeholders in the online and distance learning context.
Teaching and Learning Online, 2nd Edition, provides practical advice from academics, researchers, practitioners and designers who are currently engaged in defining, creating and delivering the increasingly important world of online learning.

This handbook brings together a great deal of new data on the static and dynamic elastic properties of granular and other composite material. The authors are at the very center of today's research and present new and imported theoretical tools that have enabled our current understanding of the complex behavior of rocks.<br> There are three central themes running throughout the presentation: <br> ? Rocks as the prototypical material for defining a class of materials<br> ? The PM space model as a useful theoretical construct for developing a phenomenology<br> ? A sequence of refined analysis methods. <br> This suite of new methods for both recording and analyzing data is more than a single framework for interpretation, it is also a toolbox for the experimenter. A comprehensive and systematic book of utmost interest to anybody involved in non-destructive testing, civil engineering, and geophysics.
