Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Everything you need to build your own online classroom or education system.

If you're planning on implementing a distance learning program, you need to get down to the real issues involved with the design and management of Web-based education systems. With this powerful book/CD-ROM package and integrated Web site, you'll get a complete how-to guide to building an online education system. Experts McCormack and Jones explore the principles behind online education and help you to determine what type of system will work best for your situation. They then present a number of different system models, as well as the insight, advice, and tools you need to adapt them to your needs.

Step-by-step, they take you through all phases of a project, from analyzing your resources and designing and implementing your site, to evaluating its effectiveness, as well as managing, modifying, and updating it. Each chapter features highlights and sidebars that alert you to important principles, shortcuts, potential hazards, and customization tips. You'll also find several in-depth case studies that let you see what kind of online educational systems are being used around the world and the impact they are having on education.

The CD-ROM: HTML code for the examples of classroom models discussed in the book and a set of page templates, as well as JavaScript code, two additional chapters accessible in HTML format, and an easy-to-use glossary.

The Web Site: Designed to work as an interactive extension of the book, the Web site supplies you with: up-to-date copies of software from the book; and updated examples and case studies.

Library Journal Review

This is a good CD-ROM/book package for those starting out in web-based education. The authors take their readers through the process, discussing subjects such as design, content development, student assessment, virtual class management, and evaluation of existing products. They even take a cursory pass at setting up a web-based education system. Templates are included on the CD-ROM. Recommended for technically adept readers who need to understand the conceptual organization of information for successful web-based education. (c) Copyright 2010.
