The explosive emergence of net-based learning in higher education brings with it new possibilities and constraints in teaching and learning environments.This edited collection considers how the concept of Academic Bildung - a term suggesting a personal educational process beyond actual educational learning - can be applied to net-based higher education. The book is drawing on Scandinavian research to address the topic from both a theoretical and practical standpoint.Chapters explore the facilitation of online courses and argue how and why universities should involve dimensions of Academic Bildung on both a strategic and technological pedagogical content level. The book is structured in three parts: Part I frames the current state of net-based learning and introduces Bildung as a concept; Part II contains a set of four case studies in Norway, Sweden and Denmark, also including a fifth study that looks at Scandinavian approaches to teaching and learning in comparison with data from the USA, the UK, Australia and Canada; Part III provides a synthesis of theories and cases to examine whether a Scandinavian orientation can be discerned. Contributions suggest that in order to address one of the fundamental functions of higher education, the ability to produce new knowledge, the Academic Bildung of the students has to be in focus. Grounded in theoretical and empirical discussion, this book will appeal to researchers and academics in the field of higher education as well as personnel who work with teaching and learning with technology, and academics interested in the question of Academic Bildung.

You are about to embark on a journey. In some respects it will be similar to ones taken by other pioneers and innovators in the past. Your journey may begin with excitement and trepidation. As you continue and persevere you will discover new things and most importantly will feel a sense of accomplishment and self-improvement. There will be times along the journey when you believe that you cannot possibly go any further. You will push yourself and lo and behold you will realize that you have discovered and learned so much more then you imagined. You will be changed forever! Change is taking place everywhere and will proceed whether we are for or against it. Just as the acoustic telegraph (telephone) replaced the electric telegraph, the incandescent lamp replaced gas lighting, wireless methods superseded wired technologies; the turbines eventual replacement of the horse, the aircraft the train, the email the mailed letter to name just a few changes in our recent history. In all cases these changes were not overnight phenomena but ones that took time. Slowly the practitioners changed, the users switched and the infrastructure transitioned and then the process repeated itself. This is civilization advancing; beginning with a technological innovation, then a 'marketing' of the technology to define its benefits and most importantly the subsequent preparation of society for its eventual deployment. The only certainty is uncertainty. Our position on the merits of the change must be based on our knowledge and not hearsay. As you embark on this journey of enlightenment you may encounter resistance from others. As with all innovation and transitional periods? naysayers, especially and perhaps surprisingly from within the field, will state why the new approach is inadequate, insufficient, incapable, not going to work and so forth. In business this denial to consider the need for possible change is called 'Core Rigidity'. Why the term 'Core Rigidity'? Rigidity - because individuals refuse to consider any change or revision and want the status quo to remain. Core - because most of these individuals are experts in the field and have years of experience in the existing environment, their specific knowledge is based on the current processes and most importantly if the change does comes to pass their skill sets will be negated hence the term core rigidity. Some say it is human nature to discount new methodology, new theories, new approaches, new ideas; to paraphrase a common quote ?If it?s not broken don?t fix it?. I say where would we be today if all of our ancestors had thought that way? Despite the reluctance of incumbents change is continuous. With respect to virtual communications we are approaching the societal stage; which is why I have written this book. Virtual communications will eventually replace the current mode of distance contact. Communicating and meetings will be forever changed. It is my intention to provide the information and knowledge to empower you to successfully join this new and exciting way of communicating. I will show you how to employ and understand tools used in communicating virtually, such as Adobe Presenter, Adobe Captivate and Adobe Connect. In this book I have introduced a number of new concepts that are useful in the preparation and implementation of the virtual environments and digital content. Let's begin our journey to change.

Educators are finding that communication and interaction are at the core of a successful web-based classroom. This interactivity fosters community, which contributes to effective and meaningful learning. Positive online communities and the communication therein encourage students to interact with others’ views which not only grows one’s empathy, but is an integral part of constructivist learning theories. Because of this, the most important role of an educator in an online class is one that ensures student interactivity and engagement. Creating Teacher Immediacy in Online Learning Environments addresses the most effective models and strategies for nurturing teacher immediacy in web-based and virtual learning environments. A number of innovative methods for building an authentic, personalized online learning experience are outlined and discussed at length within this publication, providing solutions for pre-service as well as in-service educators. This book is a valuable compilation of research for course designers, faculty, students of education, administration, software designers, and higher education researchers.
