Moves to integrate the Internet into teaching and learning are rapidly gaining momentum. Technological answers are being provided before many of us understand the questions. Internet Based Learning: an Introduction and Framework for Higher Education and Business targets teachers and instructors in colleges, universities and industry who wish to capitalize on the opportunities offered by the Internet, even if their own computer skills are limited. The book starts from the premise that educators should progressively apply Internet technology as their skills and confidence grow. The text develops the concept of augmented teaching styles – supplementing traditional teaching with Internet-based options. The authors demonstrate the use of modules as the building blocks for Web-based learning.

The book is neatly presented and well laid out. Good use of tables, illustrations and white space prevent the reader being overwhelmed by text. This is an important feature in a book which presents technical subject matter for the layman.
