Here’s a brief description of a handbook from SAGE Knowledge that addresses e-learning research. SAGE Knowledge can be access through the main
page of the State Library under Stats & Government. To view these books, paste the DOI found below into the SAGE Knowledge search bar.
“The new edition of The SAGE Handbook of E-Learning Research retains the original effort of the first edition by focusing on research while capturing the leading edge of e-learning development and practice. Chapters focus on areas of development in e-learning technology, theory, practice, pedagogy and method of analysis. Covering the full extent of e-learning can be a challenge as developments and new features appear daily. The editors of this book meet this challenge by including contributions from leading researchers in areas that have gained a sufficient critical mass to provide reliable results and practices. The 25 chapters are organized into six key areas: 1. Theory 2. Literacy & Learning 3. Methods & Perspectives 4. Pedagogy and Practice 5. Beyond the Classroom 6. Futures.” (Haythornthwaite, C., Andrews, R., Fransman, J. & Meyers, E. M. (2016). The SAGE Handbook of e-learning Research 55 City Road, London: SAGE Publications Ltd doi: 10.4135/9781473955011)
