Review quote

"The latest edition of E-Learning in the 21st Century examines e-learning from the perspectives of advancing research, instructional practice, and institutional readiness. D. Randy Garrison, perhaps the prominent scholar and thought leader on e-learning, provides thought-provoking perspectives for scholars, educators, and administrators. I was highly impressed with his ability to direct practical suggestions to each of these constituencies."


--Ben Arbaugh, Department Chair, Management and Human Resources, the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, USA


"In the third edition of E-Learning in the 21st Century, D. Randy Garrison focuses more sharply on the Community of Inquiry framework and the ways in which it can inform research and practice in e-learning. As always, Garrison's insights are grounded in thoughtful and thought-provoking research findings. Newcomers to online learning and longtime fans of the Community of Inquiry framework alike will find much to value in this volume."


--Karen Swan, Stukel Professor of Educational Leadership, University of Illinois Springfield, USA
