'This is indeed a disturbing, informative and readable book. I commend it warmly to those who may wish to find out about developments in e-learning around the world; to those who have consciences which will be disturbed by much of what is highlighted and summarised here; to those willing to re-examine their optimism about the potential and implications of e-learning; and to those similarly willing to re-consider their pessimism. Buy it, read it, re-read it, question - and keep seeking answers' - John Cowan Visiting Professor, Educational Development Unit, Napier University, British Journal Educational Technology Global Perspectives on E-Learning presents several international case studies of online education written by authorities on e-learning and discusses the rhetoric that surrounds this form of teaching and learning. Illustrative sase studies from Africa, Asia, Europe, North America and Australasia are provided.
