Sometimes, all one needs is a name to get started on researching a topic. Here is one: Michael Power.
I stumbled on his e-learning diary published in open access from Athabasca University Press in both French & English, called: A Designer’s Log: Case Studies in Instructional Design.
Already there are great insights in this book, including a thorough bibliography. It seems professor Power has been active within the Journal of distance education, such as:
– Redesigning Online Learning for Graduate Seminar Delivery Vol 24, No 2 (2010)
– Générations d’enseignement à distance, technologies éducatives et médiatisation de l’enseignement supérieur Vol 17, No 2 (2002)
