Summary: This text serves as a resource and quick-reference guide for any course that demands technology skills--especially online, distance courses. E-Learning Companion shows students how to adapt previously mastered skills--such as time management, note-taking, and critical thinking--to the online environment. The text also serves as a bridge for students who may be familiar with technologies such as real-time chats, online discussion boards, and e-mail as recreational tools,
but have not learned how to apply these in a learning environment. Students learn technical terminology and how to troubleshoot, which allows them to become more flexible and capable learners. The skills they gain will support them throughout college and future careers.

The Second Edition features thoroughly updated, expanded, and edited content to ensure that it remains relevant for today's college students.
  • New! Quick Reference Guide offers a variety of tips and recommendations on such topics as e-mail, online discussion boards, listservs, online exams, and e-research in one convenient place.
  • New! Stay Focused chapter learning objectives connect the chapter content to the cognitive and technical proficiency components identified by the International ICT (Information and Communications Technology) Literacy Panel and Educational Testing Service (ETS)
  • New! Did You Stay Focused? questions at the end of each chapter reinforce understanding of chapter objectives.
  • New! Coverage of emerging e-learning technologies, such as blogs, vlogs, and wikis, helps students who may have used these tools outside the classroom apply them to a learning environment. For students who have not used these tools, this coverage helps them stay up-to-date and informed about technology they may encounter in the online classroom and what role they can expect these technologies to play in their courses.
  • New! Tips for avoiding plagiarism and copyright violations can be found in Chapter 3.
  • A spiral-bound format and smaller size make for convenient use in a campus computer lab or at home.
  • Student-to-Student Tips are recommendations based on the experiences of students from around the world who have completed online course assignments and activities.
  • The glossary features new words and phrases, including essential technical lingo.
