Abstract


With the increasing ubiquity of online and blended learning, more and more educators are being asked to teach online, often without any specific specialist training. Adding some TEC-VARIETY: 100+ activities for motivating and retaining learners online by Bonk and Khoo is a practical ‘how to’ guide for motivating learners in online and blended learning contexts. Drawing from a rich base of research into motivation, this book provides a framework and an extensive set of associated online instructional activities that anyone involved in teaching online, from primary through to tertiary education, can use to engage and motivate learners.
