Learning design has been defined as 'an application of a pedagogical model for a specific learning objective, target group and a specific context or knowledge' (Conole & Oliver, 2006, p. 5). Recent literature on learning design points to the diverse challenges faced by academics in terms of pedagogy, technology and learning context (Beetham & Sharpe, 2007; Conole, Dyke, Oliver & Seale, 2004; Conole & Fill, 2005; San. Diego et al, 2008). Learning design and assessment with etivities.

E-learning is at an exciting point in its development; its potential in terms of research is great and its impact on institutional practices is fully recognised. This book defines e-learning as a field of research, highlighting the complex issues, activities and tensions that characterise the area.

Written by a team of experienced researchers and commented upon by internationally recognised experts, this book engages researchers and practitioners in critical discussion and debate about thefindings emerging from the field and the associated impact on practice. Key topics examined include:

access and inclusion the social-cultural contexts of e-learning organisational structures, processes and identities technical aspects of learning research – using tools and resources approaches to learning and teaching practices and associated learning theories designing for e-learning and the management of educational resources professional roles and identities the evolution of e-assessment collaboration, motivation and educational evaluation.

Contemporary Perspectives in E-LearningResearch provides a synthesis of research, giving readers a grounding in contemporary e-learning scholarship whilst identifying the debates that make it such a lively and fast-moving area. A landmark text in an evolving field, this book will prove invaluable for all researchers, practitioners, policy makers and students who engage with e-learning.

Bought this book for a university course and decided to go for the e-book option on the Kindle Cloud Reader for my iPad. Big problem with the tables in the book which are too small to read and can't be adjusted in size using the usual iPad two finger trick.
Also, from the point of view of a book used for study, the annotating feature in Cloud Reader is a bit clunky, with the notes themselves quite difficult to access once they are written (compared to say Adobe Reader for iPad).
Only saving grace is the price which is considerably lower than the expensive print version.

I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Divided into two parts--macro and micro dimensions--the editors Gráinne Conole and Martin Oliver have brought together a large collection of very valuable articles by a large list of expert contributors. A high signal strength is maintained throughout this well-referenced and well-indexed text. In the introduction the editors list 98 research questions that alone make this book well worth the money. The different perspectives of the contributors gave me direction. I plan to use this text to shape my vocabulary and lay the foundations of my glossary.
