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.
Online and Social Networking Communities is a professional guide written for educational practitioners and trainers who wish to use online communication tools effectively in their teaching. Focusing on the student experience of learning in online communities, it addresses 'web 2.0' and other 'social software' tools and considers the role these technologies play in supporting student learning and building learning communities.
The guide offers:
Online and Social Networking Communities helps educators and trainers develop a critical approach by exploring online learning from both the student's and educator's perspective. This practical guide provides the tools to help develop confident and thoughtful online educators, able to create successful and enjoyable learning experiences for their students.
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 powerful guide avoids trends in technology, instead focusing on the articulation and development of the learning theories that underpin the use of technology. The book covers:
Theory into practice - emerging models and understanding from academia
The second edition of this bestselling guide addresses key gaps in the available literature including the ethics of eLearning, emerging eLearning cultures, and cutting-edge design issues and pedagogies that will take us into the next decade of eLearning and future Web 3.0+ approaches.
We live in and form part of a system of things of immense diversity and perplexity, which we call Nature; and it is a matter of the deepest interest to all of us that we should form just conceptions of the constitution of that system and of its past history. With relation to this universe, man is, in extent, little more than a mathematical point; in duration but a fleeting shadow; he is a mere reed shaken in the winds of force.
This festschrift is dedicated to Professor Howell Tong on the occasion of his 65th birthday. With a Foreword written by Professor Peter Whittle, FRS, it celebrates Tong's path-breaking and tireless contributions to nonlinear time series analysis, chaos and statistics, by reprinting 10 selected papers by him and his collaborators, which are interleaved with 17 original reviews, written by 19 international experts.Through these papers and reviews, readers will have an opportunity to share many of the excitements, retrospectively and prospectively, of the relatively new subject of nonlinear time series. Tong has played a leading role in laying the foundation of the subject; his innovative and authoritative contributions are reflected in the review articles in the volume, which describe modern and related developments in the subject, including applications in many major fields such as ecology, economics, finance and others. This volume will be useful to researchers and students interested in the theory and practice of nonlinear time series analysis.
