Education and training have faced many challenges in the past five years - political, educational, and technological trends such as the European Bologna process, Lifelong Learning and the use of Social Software are just a few of the factors influencing this field. Furthermore, technology-enhanced lea- ing has become the mainstream of educational and training innovation. Within this context, this second edition of the Handbook on "Infor- tion Technologies for Learning, Education, and Training" attempts to capture the state-of-the-art in technology-enhanced learning, as it has emerged during the last years and anticipates important future developments. As the Handbook Editors, we have aimed to provide a comprehensive guide for both researchers and practitioners working in the field of Technology-enhanced Learning and Training. Our overall objective is to enable the reader to gain a deep understanding of the past, present, and future research and applications in this field. From a research perspective, the readers will obtain an in-depth und- standing of the complex theories, strategies, concepts, and methods of Technology-enhanced Learning. Based on these fundamentals they will be able to develop new and innovative approaches for the next generation of Technology-enhanced Learning.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"Part of the publisher's series of 'International handbooks on information systems', this is a great fat book which does indeed concentrate on the technical side rather than on pedagogy. . its concern is the design and implementation of hardware/software systems (including networks) for educational and training contexts . . Its more than forty chapters each describe relevant research and practice and close with invaluable reference lists; the book itself has a fairly lengthy and detailed index - also invaluable." (British Journal of Education Technology, Vol. 33 (3), 2002)
