Web-Based Distance Education for Adults is a practical guide for teaching adult learners via the Internet. Instructors will find this book useful in creating and fortifying effective teaching approaches that embrace the unique needs of adult learners in web-based (online) distance education environments. The text is based on current research as well as the combined distance education administrative, teaching, and adult learning experiences of the authors. Readers will learn to put research and theory into action through the creation of distance education plans. Step by step, the authors show how these immediately usable and effective plans incorporate strategies, methods, and activities. The goals are enhanced student learning and increased satisfaction for both instructor and learners. Reaching across education boundaries, this book is a useful resource for practitioners in higher education, government agencies, and private industry who have been assigned the task of teaching adult distance learners.

"The authors outline a plan for creating, maintaining, and sustaining Web-based learning that provides a systematic approach to take before, during, and after a Web-based distance education experience."--Journal of Continuing Higher Education, Spring 2005

"For the educator who is new to Web-based learning, or for any setting where the students are adults, the model provided in this text is excellent. It is something concrete to use in planning for instruction. Those new to teaching and distance education will find this an excellent place to start." -- Mary K. Cooper, Adult Education Quarterly, February 2006

"…well-structured, easy to read, and the ideas presented are practical…I recommend this book for new online instructors and those who plan to participate as content specialists in a development team." -- Bonnie Luterbach, University of Manitoba, Canadian Journal of University Continuing Education, Vol. 32, No. 2, Fall 2006

"The book especially benefits the more seasoned instructor who has knowledge and experience developing face-to-face courses and wants to move to the new delivery of Internet-based instruction." -- Barbara A. Frey, Adult Learning, Vol. 14, Number 4
