"Essentials for Blended Learning is an accessible, practical guide for educators interested in integrating online technology into their courses and programs. The authors successfully promote the idea that quality in instructional design requires thought, deliberation, and firm pedagogical grounding. As education turns more to blended learning, this book provides invaluable insights."-Anthony G. Picciano, Professor and Executive Officer of the PhD Program in Urban Education, City University of New York, Graduate Center

"This book far outstrips anything currently on the market in its combination of depth, clarity, and practicality. A refreshingly modern take on the subject, it integrates solid research on blended course design with a concise, step-by-step approach to building blended courses. Novice faculty will appreciate being led gently through the process of creating a blended course, while more experienced designers will find reading it cover-to-cover a pleasant way to brush up on new trends in the field. Faculty developers will perhaps find it most useful of all - if you are looking for a single book on blended learning to give to your workshop participants, this is the one." -Michael Caulfield, Director of Blended and Networked Learning, Washington State University Vancouver
