A good starting point that teaching during the pandemic was basically “crisis teaching” rather than real distance learning. The focus of the book is on the most effective ways to design or redesign education and training programs. I completely recognize her journey into online teaching and the value of having a diverse background as well as an “entrepreneurial brain.” There is a useful set of questions throughout the chapters, and I love the Toolbox approach of defining learning goals, the question ‘why?’, and the reference to the way adult learners study. The book leads you through to developing a simple strategy plan with a very interesting section on internet access and technology issues for learners. Altogether, this is a well-written expert presentation on the real-world requirements for the design and development of online learning. It does exactly what it says on the cover. Excellent.
