E-Learning Tools and Technologies

ANDREW ALLENTUCK Globe and Mail Update Monday, February 24, 2003 MORE BOOKS:
  • Biotech
  • Wireless
  • Web
  • Security
  • IT Systems


  • AUTHOR: William Horton and Katherine Horton
  • PUBLISHER: Wiley, 2003
  • PAGE COUNT: 574

William Horton, a distinguished engineer and computer scientist, and his wife, Katherine, have put together a fundamental book about how people can learn from stuff on the web.The irony of the book is, of course, that they choose a paperback manual to teach how not to use the book.

E-Learning Tools and Fundamentals is basic because it not only discusses the apparatus and infrastructure of e-learning, but also includes comment on selection of ISPs and what bits and bytes are. For those who know these things, the book is still useful for its lists of products and suppliers. for example, if you are interested in online meeting tools, there is a two page list of suppliers of them.

For the reader interested in participating in or authoring or managing e-learning programs, the Hortons have produced a useful book. If this is not your field, the book can be read as a view of what can be done in e-space. Apart from that, while clearly written, the book has no special literary merit, does nothing to advance the state of computing, and is rather tedious for those who have learned to navigate the web and configure a network server.
