This looks like a really useful set of online learning resources. Created by researchers with the Association for Learning Technology in the UK, What research has to say for practice is a wiki containing nine guides on various topics related to online learning. The topics are:
- Tutoring on-line – Gilly Salmon and Mike Keppell
- Web-based course design – Robin Mason and Frank Rennie
- Learner acceptance of on-line learning and e-learning – Allison Littlejohn and Brian Whalley
- Learning objects and repositories – Allison Littlejohn and John Cook
- Learning using mobile and hand-held devices – Mike Sharples and Agnes Kukuluska-Hulme
- On-line communities – Frank Rennie and Mike Keppell
- Technology-supported assessment – David Nicol
- Learning environments – Bob Banks and Gilly Salmon
- Using social software in learning – Frances Bell and Frank Rennie
Not only do the guides provide a strong overview of the topics, but are well referenced and (being that it is a wiki) editable by anyone who creates an account.
