Transforming Distance Ed Course

Resources & Support

Additional Reading

We published The IDEAL Distance Education and Blended Learning Handbook, 7th Edition, just as we were finishing this course. The Handbook is not directly aligned to this course but includes many of the recommendations and resource examples included here. Both draw on the same research and shared work from practitioner networks. This is a great resource if you would rather learn from a text-based format.
