Dabbagh N., Marra, N., & Howland, J.L. (2018). Meaningful Online Learning: Integrating Strategies, Activities, and Learning Technologies for Effective Designs. London: Routledge.
This is a substantial (206-page) book, which outlines a set of practices for design, delivery, support and assessment for online learning. Written by three American practitioners, the book is practical, focused and helpful, especially for those new to the challenges of instructional design. It is not especially focused on the work of colleges and universities – some examples are from the K-12 domain – but all of it is relevant to effective instruction. What the book lacks is a sense of the real advances in some fields, especially assessment. It is somewhat traditional.
