Teaching Online: Stories from Within has captured the narratives of fifteen post-secondary instructors who currently teach online. It is a pan-Canadian sample of those who step into the depths of cyber-space and reveal their own personal insights about the world of online education in a manner that enables readers to access answers to some of the current questions concerning e-learning. Admittedly, education is vital to personal growth and understanding the world around us, but this education may simply be economically out of reach for those who live too far from the course and school where they would like to study. Online education is a potential solution, but how does one know if this is the right fit for them? This peer-reviewed book provides some insight into the trials and tribulations of online teaching and learning that may enable those people to make an informed decision. As the medium evolves and innovation drives possibilities, online post-secondary education may begin to meet wider needs.
