Book Review of Learning Online: What Research Tells Us About Whether, When and How

William H. Stewart

Abstract


Our learning has become increasingly mediated by technology and to that effect online education and blended learning in the classroom have become part and parcel of everyday life, whether taking the form of official classwork or in our own independent, interest-driven pursuits. The application of online education is not a onesize-fits-all approach however, nor may it be appropriate for all learners or instances. Means, Bakia, and Murphy have synthesised a variety of resources and topics in the field to present the reader with research that has been conducted regarding the effectiveness of online learning, as well as an engaging overview of what online learning looks like in K-12 and Higher Education, in addition to personal interest and productivity.
