Bibliographic information


"The case studies presented in the book may not replicate every class or situation you find yourself in, but there are lessons you can learn from each of them; from the concepts and contexts to how different technologies can be used to address each one. The book covers enough ground for you to try things out for yourself and make informed decisions on issues such as whether we use free and 'open' social network sites or concentrate on the 'walled garden' of the institutionally supplied VLE." - Association for Learning Technology Newsletter
