I thought using the interlibrary loan system would be a great way to save money on books, and I still do. However, with a two week loan period, and a desire to reference them more in the future, I purchased the three that I borrowed over the past six weeks or so. At least the loan assured me that they are ones I want. Now to read, with an obvious need for a discplined approach to getting through:
The E-Learning Handbook: Past Promises, Present Challenges
Saul Carliner and Patti Shank, eds
E-Moderating: The Key to Teaching & Learning Online
E-Learning Groups and Communities
I also have some free e-book downloads that I need to catch up on:
Mobile Learning: Transforming the Delivery of Education and Training
Mohamed Ally, ed.
A Designer’s Log: Case Studies in Instructional Design
The Theory and Practice of Online Learning, 2nd ed.
Terry Anderson, ed.
Introducing Copyright: A Plain Language Guide to Copyright in the 21st Century
Opening Up Education: The Collective Advancement of Education through Open Technology, Open Content, and Open Knowledge
Toru Iiyoshi and M. S. Vijay Kumar, eds
And, of course, I need to spend some time with the new 6th edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association. I used to teach APA to my students in their first course in college. However, I recognize that you cannot retain it all, and the manual is a great reference.
