Excellent, an article that focuses upon pedagogy and not primarily on the technology!!!! This article captures the dream I had for technology and teaching in the 1990's. Since then we've waded through stages of adoption of technology that have taken us back to our rudimentary ways of teaching which place the learner in a passive position. Now, with this work and others like it, we are seeing the true learner-centered pedagogical power of teaching using a CMS! I applaud this work!

Technical Remarks:

The author bases her work upon solid pedagogical work. The writing about deeper learning is well done. By dividing the work into five categories, the author makes this work relevant to faculty developing learning content in the online environment really accessible. This author does not include much reference to the online learning research of the last few years which is taking our practice to new levels in this technology rich environment. I recommend this article to faculty beginning their work in the online environment. It sets a new vision of what's possible.
