About this book


The handbook's goal is to enable the reader to gain a deep understanding of past, current and future research and applications in the field of educational technology. The reader will gain an in-depth understanding of complex theories, strategies, concepts, and methods relating to the design, development, implementation, and evaluation of educational technologies. Because it combines both the present experience in the field and the vision of its emerging directions, the handbook will be a comprehensive guide for researchers and practitioners working with educational technologies. All the chapters of the second edition are newly written, the handbook therefore presents the latest developments in the field.

From the reviews:

"Part of the publisher’s series of ‘International handbooks on information systems’, this is a great fat book which does indeed concentrate on the technical side rather than on pedagogy. … its concern is the design and implementation of hardware/software systems (including networks) for educational and training contexts … . Its more than forty chapters each describe relevant research and practice and close with invaluable reference lists; the book itself has a fairly lengthy and detailed index – also invaluable." (British Journal of Education Technology, Vol. 33 (3), 2002)
