This E-Primer series places e-learning in a context of learning theory, institutional development, and instructional design. It examines the role of faculty, good practice in hybrid course design, and the dynamics of online discussion -- and places all of these in a coherent context, drawing from refereed sources and almost a decade of dedicated experience.
