Review: Cleveland-Innes, M. F., & Garrison, D. R. (Eds.), (2021). An introduction to distance education: Understanding teaching and learning in a new era (2nd ed.). New York, N.Y.: Routledge.
The second edition of this textbook on distance education is a book of essays by well-known Canadian distance education scholars and their colleagues from Australia, New Zealand, Spain, Sweden, and the United States. Some of the authors appeared in the original 2010 edition of the text, and because their work is noted as seminal by the editors, they provide updated views on their research and its implications within the current educational context.
