The messages for each are important and timely. Not only is the book well written, but it is also comprehensive in nature. It covers topics of vital concern for all who are involved in technology–enhanced or technology–based learning. In summary, this book is founded on principles. It speaks to the relevant issues. It offers numerous examples. It is well constructed and written. Hats off to Tony Bates." (Byron Burnham, International Review of Research in Open and Distance Learning: 1, 2)
