Review quote

Reviews of the first edition: "There have been many times when I have wished that I had the 'resources for practitioners' that Gilly Salmon has collected, with all the techniques, tips, and tricks together in one place....[The] five-stage model is probably her strongest contribution to the e-moderator's knowledge base. This model accurately reflects students' experience and has been tested and refined over several years and many students and e-moderators. It can be easily adapted to any location and used with any kind of conferencing system. The resources in the second half of the book [can] apply to the North American conferencing environment [and] should be required reading for all those involved in the e-moderating enterprise, regardless of their roles. Is the book worth ordering from your ... bookstore? You bet!." -- Quarterly Review of Distance EducationbA must read for distance learning educators.b -- The Journal of Excellence in Higher Educationshow more
