Selected Styles in Web-Based Educational Research

Dr. Bruce Mann

Book Cover: Selected Styles in Web-Based Educational Research

Selected Styles in Web-Based Educational Research is a book of common research methods for conducting empirical investigations over the Internet. It can either be read from start to finish, or consulted at the start of a research program and during the research itself for its information and examples on the most popular styles in Web-based educational research. Interest in the book should be highest among new researchers of online teaching, given the growing popularity of web-based education in most education and training sectors. The writing style is conversational. Some of the chapters are general in approach while others are case studies and research reports. Illustrations are used throughout the text to increase interest and enhance student understanding.

Selected Styles in Web-Based Educational Research targets a large contingent of knowledgeable skeptics for whom web-based teaching and learning has become an object of study. It is intended for prospective web teachers and trainers interested in conducting web-based educational research, and helps define style in educational research methodology.
