Effective practices in distance education are meetings, programs. or courses that have proven to be successful. They provide valuable ideas for those who are new to the distance learning experience in the areas of — 1) making learning accessable, 2) learning effectiveness 3) faculty satisfaction, 4) learner satisfaction, and 5) cost-effectiveness (Sloan-C Five Pillars of Success). At ICS we have published a book of case studies provided by practicing distance education professionals that can serve as a valuable resource for learning about the effective use of the spectrum of distance educational technologies.
The book, “Using Distance Education Technology: Effective Practices” is a compilation of 25 case studies of instructors and trainers using technology. They use a variety of delivery methods including blending various technologies to accomplish their goals. The case studies cover a variety of instructional areas in various educational formats from full courses to short meetings and workshops. Each author has listed “lessons learned” through their distance education experience, that they want to share with others. Additional case studies are found on the book’s companion web site.
