The unfortunate reputation of online education today is one of little or no effort on the professor's part and little or no learning on the student's part. A missing element in much online education is the kind of mutual engagement between student and instructor that provides not only a higher level of learning but also lasting character formation within the student.

Character Formation in Online Education stems from author Joanne Jung's years of experience teaching online courses with the aim of improving the teaching environment for professors and the learning environment for students. By replicating, customizing, and incorporating the best and most effective practices of what a great professor does in on-campus classes, reimagined for an online delivery system, Jung shows how a higher level of learning and transformation can be achieved through online learning communities.

Handy and practical, this user-friendly book provides guidance, helpful tools, and effective suggestions for growing learning communities in online courses that are marked by character growth in students—the kind of growth that is central to the mission of Christian higher education.

Editorial Reviews

As we become more aware of the need for creating environments that are conducive to fostering and promoting spiritual formation in Christian distance education, this book helps everyone from the novice to the well-informed navigate the waters of online course development. Jung has developed a valuable instrument for guiding the practitioner toward an understanding of the integration between formative experiencesthrough the relationships in community and learning content. Her book bridges the divide between online and hybrid education in a way that helps one apply basic principles of formation in technologically mediated learning environments. -- Mary E. Lowe, , Associate Dean and Professor, School of Divinity, Liberty University
