As student enrollment in higher education changes and enrollment in online courses increases, this book presents the foundations of teaching and learning in online environments needed to meet these needs. The workforce is changing rapidly, and knowledge and skills need updating to meet employment demands. To meet these changes, learning needs to be lifelong, and the learning environments need to be flexible and creative.
