This book examines under which conditions information technology can stimulate high-quality learning, in particular at the undergraduate level and in social science courses. It also reports on possible effects the use of technology might have on student learning. Ex-amples provided by the authors show that emerging technologies can be particularly help-ful while teaching large student groups or while teaching courses with rapidly changing content.
