Create an effective learning environment! Corporations are spending billions of dollars on web-based training. But you can't just slap some material up on a web page and expect your employees and students to learn everything. To use the web intelligently and effectively as a teaching medium, you have to understand how to create a learning environment. The Web Learning Fieldbook gives you access to: Sample learning environments to guide you in creating your own Links to related sites, as well as customizable electronic templates and tools that you can download and use right away Useful, not overly technical advice on how to incorporate web-based learning into your workplace A collaborative space for learners, educators, trainers, and mentors to exchange knowledge, tools, and ideas "Any training manager or instructional designer thinking of adding a web classroom to a workplace learning solution would benefit from the practical advice in the Web Learning Fieldbook. Taking the perspective of the learner, it focuses on how the web can aid in skill development." --Larry Tesler, president, Stagecast Software Other books may show you how to create an effective training presentation.
