This book was written by two university professors in the United States, Poritz (mathematics) and Rees (history), for the stated purpose of examining the economic and pedagogical impacts of technology on higher education learning. The authors structured the book to examine contemporary manifestations of technological development within education, including fully on-line courses, blended (hybridization) classes, and massive open online courses (MOOCs), as well as various uses of social media in the classroom setting.
