Web Social Science Applied to e-Learning
I found Robert Ackland's "Web Social Science: Concepts, Data and Tools for Social Scientists in the Digital Age" (SAGE Publications, 2013), on the new books stand at the ANU Library. This is very relevant to the pedagogy of e-learning, as the techniques for carrying out social research can be applied to research into the effectiveness of on-line learning. The introductory chapter includes a potted history of the Internet and the web, but more importantly discusses what virtual communities and on-line social networks are. This could be useful for illuminating a discussion of what on-line education is.
