“This book makes a great shot at disentangling the challenge of the diversity of learning technologies and their intricate association with pedagogical approaches. The terms used by the book – combining, uniting and interrelationships – in some ways underplay the major challenges it poses. Have a good read of it – and most importantly try out some ideas.”
Gilly Salmon, Professor of E-learning & Learning Technologies, Beyond Distance Research Alliance

“This [book] represents a significant collection of papers which, I am sure, will help inform the development of an online pedagogy for problem-based learning.”
Michael Prosser, Director Research and Evaluation, Higher Education Academy

“The studies presented in this book are evidence informed and theoretically framed in ways that promise to advance our understanding of these complex areas. This collection will be an invaluable read for anyone involved in PBL and/or e-learning in higher education. “
Glynis Cousin, Senior Adviser, Higher Education Academy
