Summary

In the twenty-first century, classrooms are not defined by the four walls that traditionally contained them. A Classroom of One is a report from the frontlines of online education, a revolution in learning that breaks the tyranny of time and place to make education a process that can occur anywhere at anytime for students from first grade through graduate school. Gene Maeroff looks at how school and college courses taught entirely over the Internet are changing education by allowing students to earn credits and degrees without entering classrooms. He looks critically at the way in which students and teachers interact without seeing each other, how online learning alters the role of teachers and professors, and how educational institutions must adapt to a world of virtual learners who may never come to campus. In this insightful book, the first ever to provide a complete snapshot of the entire world of online learning, Gene Maeroff gives readers a glimpse of an electronic revolution that will forever change the way we think about and engage in education.
