Information communication technologies (ICTs) are a disruptive force affecting every aspect of human life. The integration of ICTs with the internet has global reach, including into the field of higher education, and this has caused traditional methods to be too slow and too unresponsive for the needs of many aspiring students. With faster lifestyles, borderless online learning is becoming more prevalent at every level of instruction.

The quality of education now hinges less on the mode of instruction or the institutional reputation and more on the commitment of individual administrators and instructors to understand and apply digital learning. Digital Learning reveals the technologies behind successful implementation of online learning and teaching, and introduces the most important concepts and relationships in plain language. Readers are also provided with a glossary of key terms and a selection of resources.

Milakovich and Wise have created the essential reference for faculty and administrators interested in developing online courses, students interested in pursuing online degree programs and faculty interested in converting in-class to online courses.
