King, E. & Alperstein, E. (2017). Best Practices in Strategic Planning for Online Educational Programs. New York: Routledge. [Review available]
The design, development, deployment, delivery and assessment of online learning is not a simple and straightforward practice in many institutions. There are nuances, complexities and challenges which get in the way of best practice and effective implementation of online learning strategies.
This book documents most of them and provides insights, especially for administrators, about what to anticipate and what steps to take to ensure the effective and efficient deployment of online learning. There is an especially helpful self-assessment and audit section which will help you look systematically at how ready the institution is for the next stage of your online learning plan.
