Advanced Web-Based Training Strategies fills the gap in the literature available on this topic by offering a volume that includes meaningful, applicable, and proven strategies that can take the experienced instructional designer to the next level of web-based training. Written by Margaret Driscoll and Saul Carliner-internationally acclaimed experts on e-learning and information design-Advanced Web-Based Training Strategies provides instructional designers, e-learning developers, technical communicators, students, and others with strategies for addressing common challenges that arise when designing e-learning. Balancing educational theory with the practical realities of implementation, Driscoll and Carliner outline the benefits and limitations of each strategy, discuss the issues surrounding the implementation of these strategies, and illustrate each strategy with short scenarios drawn from real-world online learning programs representing a wide variety of fields including technology, financial services, health care, and government. Some of the specific design challenges this book addresses include learning theory for e-learning, m-learning, simulations and games, interactivity, communicating visually, writing for the screen, preparing introductions and closings, mentoring and coaching e-learners, and blended learning.''This book is a must read for any learning professional that wants to move beyond the hype and basic cookie-cutter approach to e-learning. Margaret Driscoll and Saul Carliner know how to 'walk the walk,' and their uncluttered view of the field will leave you recharged and once again excited about building out your repertoire of instructional techniques.''-Steven Teal, vice president of learning services, Mariott International''In a time when boring page-turning courses threaten to destroy the credibility of e-learning, this book offers innovative ideas for moving beyond the doldrums and truly aligning e-learning technology with best-practice instructional strategies. It is a must read for instructional designers and other e-learning practitioners.''-Bryan Chapman, e-learning analyst,''At last! An e-learning book that puts principles of design firmly back into the driving seat. For those disillusioned with 'straitjacketed' and ineffective instructional content, this book promises a liberating array of tools and techniques.''-Patrick Lambe, president, Information and Knowledge Management Society''I found myself nodding with agreement as I read Advanced Web-Based Training Strategies. Margaret Driscoll and Saul Carliner have provided a much needed resource for those working in the field of e-learning design.''-Rik Hall, manager, instructional technology, University of New Brunswick
